Abstract:The current studies aim to evaluate how value cues and directed forgetting instructions affect memory. Object-scene pairings were assigned positive, zero, and negative values, and memory was assessed with associative recognition. In Experiment 1, the encoding strategy was controlled, whereas in Experiment 2, it was left open to participants. There was no effect of value manipulation on associative recognition in Experiment 1 and 2. Experiment 3 fully replicated Experiment 2 with data collected online. The results suggest differences between the underlying mechanisms of Value Directed Remembering paradigm and the Directed Forgetting paradigm, more specifically indicating that the negative value cues and the forget cues are not treated the same way.
