Abstract

This study examines the effect of part-set cuing on spatial memory. There are two main effects of part-set cuing. Part-set cuing inhibition refers to the finding that hints, specifically part of the set of to-be-remembered information, often impair memory performance in free recall tasks. Part-set cuing facilitation is the finding that these hints enhance memory. Participants viewed the construction on snap circuit objects and then attempted to reconstruct the objects either in the presence or absence of part-set cues. Two experiments revealed robust part-set cuing facilitation on the spatial memory tasks.
