Acquisition of Novel Traces in Short-term Implicit Memory: Priming for Illegal Nonwords and New Associations
McKone (1995) reported a short-lived repetition priming effect (up to 8 sec and three intervening items), superimposed on long-term priming. In lexical decision and naming, decay of this short-term implicit memory was faster for pseudowords than for words, suggesting an explanation in terms of transient activation of preexisting lexical representations. Here, we present two cases where, in contrast, preexperimental familiarity did not affect short-term priming, indicating acquisition of novel...[Show more]
