Carry-Over Facilitation for Non-Familiar Trials in Item-Recognition

Abstract [en]

Two aspects of cognitive control were investigated using the item-recognition task and the verb generation task. The item-recognition task had two conditions, high and low interference. The verb generation task was manipulated in three ways, for different levels of interference and time interval. The intention was to more deeply investigate one aspect of the item-recognition task, comparing response times for different trial types in different conditions, and to investigate a fatigue effect between the item-recognition and verb generation task. Thirty-two participants were tested at two occasions, in a within-subjects design. Results for the verb generation task revealed effects for levels of interference and time interval, although there was no difference in the manipulation. Results for the item-recognition task revealed effects for condition and trial type, as well as an interaction effect between these. The non-familiar trials in the high interference condition resulted in faster response times compared to the same kind of trials in the low condition. The result from the item-recognition task extends those from previous studies, revealing details for differences between trial types. This finding demonstrates a carry-over facilitation effect.
