This chapter broadens the scope of theory developed in Chapters 1-6 to include many of the phenomena traditionally treated in memory research and theory. It begins with what is believed to be the most nearly basic index of memory, that is, recognition, and takes up the idea from a much earlier period — that a close study of recognition may yield dividends in helping us to understand apparently more complex forms of memory. Topics discussed include recognition as a window to memory, recognition in the array framework, recognition in the similarity-network model, short-term memory search, and recognition as a measure of memory.

Keywords:   memory research, recognition, array framework, similarity-network model, short-term memory
