This report describes work completed and in progress on the encoding and storage mechanisms used by human subjects. Experiments are described in the areas of encoding of perceptual information and the storage of verbal materials. The work on the encoding of perceptual information was concerned with extending the application of the verbal loop hypothesis. It consisted of experimental reexamination of sets of stimuli previously analyzed with information-theoretic measures and experimental analysis of serial position effects in perception. The work on storage of verbal materials was concerned with the role of mnemonic organizing factors in free recall situations. Author
