Abstract/Description: Recent literature has demonstrated that if someone studies one list of word pairs followed by another list of word pairs in which the second half of some of the pairs have changed (e.g., they saw “knee-bone” on the first list and “knee-bend” on the second list), this change can remind them of the pair’s presence on the original list and improve memory performance for both of the pairs. Previously, this kind of design would lead researchers to observe interference, which would cause memory performance to suffer; the discovery of the memory enhancing effects of reminders inspired further research to understand how their underlying mechanisms and what makes them more likely to occur. The presented research examines whether picture-word pairs will trigger more remindings than word-word pairs on the presumption that the picture superiority effect will play an important role. The results indicate that participants did experience more remindings for the picture-word pairs than for the word-word pairs and that better memory performance for picture-word pairs is due to a combination of this effect and an encoding effect.
