Implicit Memory

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Implicit memory is said to be operative when people do not deliberately or explicitly recollect information from the past yet they exhibit memory for a previous experience in an indirect manner. It has different properties compared with explicit memory, which is expressed when people consciously and deliberately recollect information from the past. The incremental theoretical progress in explaining implicit memory, especially one form of it labeled repetition priming, is summarized.
