Abstract:

A brief historical explication of associative interference theory is presented. Then reanalyzed retroactive-interference and spontaneous-recovery data from the literature are shown to deny the central premise of this theory. The alternative list-differentiation theory is then historically summarized and new data presented that argue its inadequacy. The current theoretic emphasis on functional stimulus encoding is noted.
