New paper on the effects of attention on recollection and familiarity accepted! Congrats Adam!

Adam Broitman’s paper, “The Effects of Encoding Instruction and Opportunity on the Recollection of Behaviorally Relevant Events” has been accepted for publication at QJEP! The paper demonstrates that the attentional boost effect is present in estimates of both recollection and familiarity even for images that are ignored. The boost to recollection also increases as increases in the opportunity to encode the images increases – either through multiple presentations or longer trials. Target detection therefore enhances a key feature of episodic memory. Nice work Adam!
