I conducted an experiment for my A Level coursework on the method of loci. This involved remembering items in a shopping list.
I instructed participants to read from a book (Oliver Twist) during the five-minute interference task. What, in psychological models of memory, does this do? Yes, it prevents rehearsal - is this because is ties up the articulary loop (Baddely and Hitch)?
Or is this not correct because this is only for spoken words, and so another theory will be valid instead?
Any help would be appreciated.
im bumping this to the top as my way of saying 'i dont know so ill do something nice instead'
