Abstract

The present study explored the influence of part-set cuing on spatial memory. Cole et al. (2013) reported part-set cuing facilitation with snap circuits, but Watkins et al. (1984) showed no influence of part-set cuing on memory with chess boards. The current experiment was designed to determine the origin of these disparate results. Participants viewed four chess boards with either densely and sparsely placed pieces and then were asked to reconstruct the board either with or without cues. Results indicated that part-set cues did not influence memory for chess positions in either the dense or sparse presentation conditions.
