The effect of mood context on implicit remembering Ryan, Lee


Two experiments were conducted to investigate whether mood dependent remembering occurs in situations where remembering is unintentional, or implicit. Experimentally induced moods (happy and sad) were used to create a distinctive context during the study and test sessions. In Experiment 1, performance on two implicit tasks, picture identification and category production, was examined when mood context was similar and dissimilar from study to test. Experiment 2 used a modified version of picture identification, and contrasted an explicit task (free recall) with an implicit task (word stem completion). The results are briefly discussed within a framework of transfer appropriate processing.
