Retrieval dynamics and brain mechanisms
Journal/Book: Behav Brain Sci. 1999; 22: 40 West 20Th Street, New York, NY 10011-4211, USA. Cambridge Univ Press. 453+.
Abstract: Experiments on memory-retrieval dynamics support the hypothesis that different mechanisms mediate processes of familiarity and recall (recollection). The minimal retrieval time for accurate recognition and frequency judgments is about 100 msec earlier than the minimal time to judge details such as modality or location. The difference is consistent with neurophysiological evidence. Retrieval dynamics data are also relevant to other aspects of Aggleton & Brown's target article.
