Retrieval-induced forgetting: the detrimental effects of memory retrieval

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Memory Retrieval; Retrieval Practice; Inhibition; Interference; Episodic Memory.

Retrieving information from episodic memory may result in the paradoxical impairment of subsequent recall of related information. This phenomenon has been called "Retrieval-Induced Forgetting", and has typically been investigated by means of the "retrieval practice" paradigm. This paper aims to review twenty years of research which employed this paradigm to understand the properties of this phenomenon, with a special focus on studies addressing the theoretical debate between "inhibitory and interference" accounts. Recent works concerning the neural underpinnings of "Retrieval-Induced Forgetting" and its hypothetical applications in several psychological domains are also discussed.
