Constructions of Remembering and Metacognition PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Constructions of Remembering and Metacognition free pdf Remembering often feels direct - like mental time travel. However, an increasing body of research, led by Bruce Whittlesea and others, suggests that remembering is not so direct but often inferential in nature. Similarly, research on metacognition has shown that inferences are involved with other subjective judgments as well. For example, high confidence in the answer to a question can arise from participants' inferences about the ease of generating details related to that question. Constructions of Remembering and Metacognition contains 17 chapters authored by world-renowned researchers from Europe and North America honouring Bruce Whittlesea's lifetime contribution to memory research. The volume reflects the current understanding amongst researchers that memory is more than passive acquisition and retrieval, but involves constructions, attributions, and inferences. Topics include the inferences underlying feelings of familiarity and recollection, inferences involved in the maintenance of accuracy, and elaboration of Whittlesea's own SCAPE model of memory.
