Reduction of redundant stimulus information in short-term memory
Bulletin of the Psychonomic Society
Twenty-six Ss were tested on a recognition memory task in which stimulus material was presented repetitiously on some trials. The number of items and the number of repeated itmes presented for memory were varied. A typical linear function relating reaction time of the recognition response to number of items in memory was found for nonredundant information. Evidence for the reduction of redundant information was provided by the finding that reaction times were alike on trials in which the amount of information remained constant although the number of items increased. © 1973, The Psychonomic Society, Inc..
