The effect of spacing with unfamiliar sounds

Nicola Mammarella, Anthony Saliba

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Studied spacing effects on unfamiliar material in recognition memory. Subjects were 18 university students in England. The use of incidental learning tasks that promoted structural/perceptual processing of targets made it possible to obtain a reliable spacing effect for nonsense auditory stimuli in a yes/no recognition memory task. It is maintained that these data extend and support previous findings that detected a significant spacing effect with nonsense shapes and nonwords.
