just as we saw before, when we were discussing perception, people do get primed and are faster to recognize these words that they had seen before, even though they have no specific memory of them being encountered before. So if you ask them, where they if they had seen the word, they don't have a particular memory of it because they were never reading the list to memorize it anyway. Another study also looked at this effect. In this experiment, researchers created two groups of participants, people with amnesia and people without without who served with the healthy controls? these participants were presented some words and were asked to rate each word on a scale of one to five to say how much they liked the word. So again, they would be performing a task that was unrelated to memory as far as they knew. Then they were given a direct task asking which words they had seen on the list that they had seen previously. Or they were given an implicit task. What tasks were they were given a three letterfragment, and were asked to create the first word that came to mind. So for example, they might get thethree letter string s CO, and they might answer the word score. Here we have the data, the percentage of correct words or hearing the y axis and the two testing methods the free recall or the explicit memorymethod and the completion task the stem completion task which was the implicit memory method. The blue indicates the Control healthy participants and the peach orangish color indicate the amnesic patience. People generally did better in the implicit task. However, what we find is that while people withamnesia did way worse and the controls and the explicit free recall task, they actually had no difficulty doing the implicit completion task. The fact that different results can be found depending on the methodwith which it is tested provides us with further evidence for the existence of two types of memory, explicit memory and implicit memory which can be tested either through direct testing or indirect testing methods. But what exactly is implicit memory? And how is it different from explicit memory?09:51To answer this question, we can ask how might an implicit memory feel when it is being remembered? To consider this we can think of a study Looking at what is called as the false fame effect, we're also known as the becoming famous overnight study. Researchers in this study presented participants with a list of names, and were told nothing about the future memory test. These names these were, they were asked to pronounce a list of non famous names in this task. They thought that they had to think about just the pronunciation they were not intending to memorize. Participants were either tested right after, or they were tested 24 hours later. In this test, they were given a set of names, some of which were famous names, and some of which were non famous names. of those. Some of them were ones that they had seen previously. And some of them were not. They were asked to rate these names
