- The separate but related origins of the recency effect and the modality effect in free recallC P Beaman
Department of Psychology, University of Reading, Harry Pitt Building, Earley Gate, Whiteknights, RG6 6AL, Reading, UK
Cognition 77:B59-65. 2000..The modality effect in free recall, the advantage of auditory over visual presentation, can be substantially accounted for in these terms. Theoretical and procedural implications of these data are discussed...
- Earworms (stuck song syndrome): towards a natural history of intrusive thoughtsC Philip Beaman
School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading, UK
Br J Psychol 101:637-53. 2010..Active attempts to block or eliminate the earworm are less successful than passive acceptance, consistent with Wegner's theory of ironic mental control...
- Modeling distributions of immediate memory effects: no strategies needed?C Philip Beaman
Department of Psychology, School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading, Reading RG6 6AL, United Kingdom
J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 34:219-29. 2008..The implications of these results and the wider applicability of the distributionmodeling approach are discussed...
- From dichotic listening to the irrelevant sound effect: a behavioural and neuroimaging analysis of the processing of unattended speechC Philip Beaman
Department of Psychology, School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading, Whiteknights, Reading, UK
Cortex 43:124-34. 2007..The relationship of this functional and neuroanatomical model to known neural correlates of working memory is considered...
- The relationship between absolute and proportion scores of serial order memory: simulation predictions and empirical dataC Philip Beaman
School of Psychology, University of Reading, Earley Gate, Whiteknights, Reading RG6 6AL, England
Psychon Bull Rev 13:92-8. 2006..The usefulness of formal models as predictive tools and the continuity between short-term serial order and longer-term item memory are considered...
- The irrelevant sound phenomenon revisited: what role for working memory capacity?C Philip Beaman
School of Psychology, University of Reading, Reading, United Kingdom
J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 30:1106-18. 2004..Results suggest that OSPAN mediates semantic components of auditory distraction dissociable from other aspects of the irrelevant sound effect...
- Inverting the modality effect in serial recallC Philip Beaman
Department of Psychology, University of Reading, UK
Q J Exp Psychol A 55:371-89. 2002....
- Why are we good at detecting cheaters? A reply to FodorC Philip Beaman
Department of Psychology, University of Reading, Earley Gate, Whiteknights, Reading, UK
Cognition 83:215-20; discussion 221. 2002..It is concluded that, although Fodor's variant of the Wason selection task improves performance, this improvement is independent of the task domain and is insufficient to account for the "cheater detection" effect...
- A little learning is a dangerous thing: an experimental demonstration of ignorance-driven inferenceCaren A Frosch
Department of Psychology, University of Reading, Reading, UK
Q J Exp Psychol (Hove) 60:1329-36. 2007..These results are consistent across a number of variations: the number of options given to participants and the nature of the wealth judgement. A basic model of recognition-based inference predicts these effects...
- Fast and frugal framing effects?Rachel McCloy
School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences, University of Reading, Reading, England
J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 36:1043-52. 2010..These results support the idea that when making pairwise comparison judgments, inferring that the recognized item is large is simpler than inferring that the unrecognized item is small...
- Auditory memory and the irrelevant sound effect: Further evidence for changing-state disruptionTom Campbell
University of Reading, UK
Memory 10:199-214. 2002..Theoretical implications are discussed...
- Input and output modality effects in immediate serial recallAlistair J Harvey
University of Winchester, UK
Memory 15:693-700. 2007..These new data suggest that both superior auditory encoding and modality-specific output interference contribute to the classic auditory-visual modality effect...
- Modern cognition in the absence of working memory: does the working memory account of Neandertal cognition work?C Philip Beaman
J Hum Evol 52:702-6. 2007
