Abstract

To examine the effects of repetition, study time, and similarity on associative recognition (AR), two experiments were conducted and a new model of associative recognition that accounts for both accuracy and latency data was proposed. In Experiment 1, repetition and study time were manipulated within subject and stimulus type was manipulated between subjects. As a package, the results for all three types of stimuli, namely English words, pseudo words, and Chinese characters, disconfirmed single-process familiarity-only or recall-only models and support the predictions of the dual-process model of Malmberg, Holden and Shiffrin (2004). Experiment 2 investigated the latencies of correct AR responses. In contrast to the prediction of the Malmberg et al. model, median latencies for hits were faster than for correct rejections. A new model is proposed to account for both the accuracy and latency of AR.
