CogLab Report: Encoding Specificity Introduction According to the encoding specificity principle, the recollection of an event depends on the interaction between the properties of the encoded event and the properties of the encoded retrieval information. In other words, whether an item will be remembered at a particular time depends on the interaction between the processing that occurred during encoding and the processing that occurred at retrieval. Since this is the interaction between encoding and retrieval it is important in memory. This experiment is based on the encoding specificity principle. Some target words will be presented alone and some will be presented with a cue. There are three cue conditions: no cue, same cue, or different cue. The interaction between how you process it at encoding and how you process it at test is what determines your ability to recall a particular target. If the cue changes, it is likely that the subject will process the item in a different manner than when the same cue is presented once again. There are two phases to this experiment.
