    • The benefits and boundary conditions of drawing on episodic memory 

      Meade, Melissa (University of Waterloo, 2019-09-19)
      Drawing, as an encoding strategy for to-be-remembered words, has previously been shown to provide robust episodic memory benefits in young adults. In this dissertation, I provide experimental evidence that drawing enhances ...
    • Context reinstatement reconsidered: Investigating boundary conditions of the effect 

      Lee, Christopher Michael (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-23)
      The context reinstatement (CR) effect suggests that target items are easier to recognize when encoding and retrieval contexts are matched. In this PhD thesis, I manipulated features of the target and the context, in ...
    • Memory Bias for Threat-Related Information in Social Anxiety 

      Yeung, Ryan (University of Waterloo, 2018-08-03)
      Biases in what is committed to memory and ultimately remembered are a key feature in individuals plagued by high levels of social anxiety. By selectively remembering the unfavourable aspects of past social situations, early ...
    • Negative Encoding Contexts Create a Downstream Memory Advantage for Foils 

      Lee, Christopher (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-31)
      Research has suggested that during a recognition test, we re-enter the mode of processing engaged at encoding to help constrain our memory search during retrieval (Jacoby, Shimizu, Daniels, & Rhodes, 2005). A by-product ...
    • On the mnemonic benefits of drawing 

      Wammes, Jeffrey (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-02)
      Researchers have long sought to explore means through which the amount, and quality of information one is able to remember can be improved. Attention has been paid variously to multimodal encoding, visual learning, and ...
    • Re-evaluating Whether Bilateral Eye Movements Influence Memory Retrieval 

      Roberts, Brady (University of Waterloo, 2019-07-30)
      Several recent studies have reported enhanced memory when retrieval is preceded by repetitive horizontal eye movements, relative to vertical or no eye movements. This reported memory boost has been referred to as the ...
