More on Memory

10 February 2011

Back to memory; we briefly discussed the role of testing in assisting memorisation (a propos of Paul G’s recall of the number sequence) and I promised to dig out an article on it. It proved rather more elusive than I had expected, but then I found it could be downloaded as a .pdf file from http://www.physics.emory.edu/~weeks/journal/pyc-sci10.pdf.

Pyc M and Rawson K (2010) “Why Testing Improves Memory: Mediator Effectiveness Hypothesis” Science 15 October Vol. 330 no. 6002 p. 335
