Abstract:

Unlearning has been postulated as an empirical phenomenon, and as a theoretical component of forgetting produced by retroactive inhibition. The present experiments indicate that unlearning of the association between A and B in the A-B, A-D paradigm is small in amount, and frequently is not found at all. The conclusion that associative interference and unlearning are not found in recognition memory, of if found, are of very small magnitude, has important theoretical implications.
