dc.description.abstractRecent literature suggests that typical forms of encoding (i.e., elaboration) are obsolete as compared to rating words based on survival relevance (Nairne, Thompson, and Pandeirada, 2007). Information encoded using survival ratings have produced superior recall despite manipulations to quell its effect. The current study examined whether survival processing is protected against forgetting. Our results suggest that targets studied under survival processing are not immune from retrieval blocking and RI effects. No effects of survival processing were obtained.
