Words from the end of the list went into short term memory recency effect which can typically hold about 7 items.

Each word was presented for one to two seconds. Two storage mechanisms in glaner recall. Words presented either early in the list or glahzer the end were more often recalled, but the ones in the middle were more often forgotten. Journal of Experimental Psychology64 5— This is known as the serial position effect. The improved recall of words at the beginning of the list is called the primary effect; that at the end of the list, the recency effect.


He found that the probability of recalling any word depended on its position in the list its serial position. Glanzer and Cunitz presented two groups of glannzer with the same list of words.

Murdock asked xunitz to learn a list of words that varied in length from 10 to 40 glanzef and free recall them. A proposed system and its control processes.

Words in the middle of the list had been there too long to be held in short term memory STM due to displacement and not long enough to be put into long term memory LTM. The tendency to recall earlier words is called the primacy effect; the tendency to recall the later words is called the recency effect.

The psychology of learning and motivation Volume 2. The serial position effect of free recall. This recency effect exists even when the list is lengthened to 40 words. This is referred as a asymptote.

Glanzer and Cunitz study () by Mirto Mezini on Prezi

Experiments show that when participants are presented with a list of words, they tend to remember the first few and last few words and are more likely to forget those in the middle of the list.


The words at the end of the list are only remembered if recalled first and tested immediately. This is known as serial position effect. Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior5 4 Both groups could free recall the words in any order. One group recalled the words immediately after presentation, while the other group recalled the words after waiting 30 seconds.

These participants had to count backwards in threes the Brown-Peterson techniquewhich prevented rehearsal and caused the recency effect to disappear. Delaying recall by 30 seconds prevented the recency effect. Saul McLeodpublished Murdock suggested that words early in the list were put into long term memory primacy effect because the person has time to rehearse each word acoustically.

In a nutshell, when participants remember primary and recent information, it is thought that they are recalling information from two separate stores STM and LTM.
