Response to Barrouillet and Camos: Interference or decay in working memory?


Lewandowsky, S; Oberauer, Klaus; Brown, G (2009). Response to Barrouillet and Camos: Interference or decay in working memory? Trends in Cognitive Sciences, 13(4):146-147.

Abstract

Barrouillet and Camos raise three objections to our conclusion that short-term forgetting is caused by interference rather than decay [1]. They suggest (i) that interference models are ‘vague’, (ii) that considering forgetting as a function of delay is questionable and (iii) that the timebased resource-sharing (TBRS) model is not challenged by the data we cited. We believe that these objections do not withstand scrutiny.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
