Abstract:
A series of 5 experiments assessed implicit and explicit memory for words and nonwords. Experiments 1-2 assessed memory for words and legal nonwords (e.g. KERS) following a levels-of-processing manipulation and a study/test modality shift manipulation, respectively. Robust priming was observed for words and nonwords in both experiments, and an implicit/explicit dissociation was observed for nonwords in Experiment 1. Experiment 3 observed a double dissociation between implicit and explicit memory for words and legal nonwords following a study condition that confounded the above levels-of-processing and study/test modality shift manipulations. Experiment 4 observed robust priming for legal and illegal nonwords (e.g., XYKS) that dissociated from explicit memory following a levels-of-processing manipulation. Finally, Experiment observed significant negative priming for legal nonwords when the lexical decision task was used. These experiments suggest that implicit memory can extend to legal and illegal nonwords.
