A Computational Account of Phonologically Mediated Free Recall
This paper investigates, by means of experimentation and simulation, Phonological Mediation in Immediate Free List Recall. It consists of two parts. The first part presents novel experimental evidence on Phonological Similarity and Word Length effects in free recall. The second part describes the architecture and simulation results of a novel connectionist model of free recall.
