Part-List Cueing Inhibition in Semantic Memory Structures

Abstract

The effect of part-list cueing on retrieval of information from semantic memory was examined. Using a free-association paradigm, subjects were cued in a second session with responses given in an initial session two days earlier. The number of cues (one, two, or three) as well as their location of occurrence in the original protocol, or strength, were systematically varied. There was an overall inhibitory effect of cued, relative to noncued, recall, which did not vary as a function of the number of cues or their strength. The outcome was inconsistent with the strength, cue-overload, and editing interference interpretations of the part-list inhibition effect. However, the strategy disruption position provided an adequate account for the findings.
