How do people decide whether or not they have seen or experienced something
at some point in the past? What cognitive systems allow individuals to
distinguish between old events and new events? How do these relevant
systems function? Such questions reflect key unkowns in recognition memory.
Our research focuses on the underlying psychological mechanisms enabling
recognition memory decisions. Our work focuses on standard recognition
(old versus new), source recognition (distinguishing whether one source
or another produced and event), and the effects of aging on recognition
memory. Currently we are investigating aspects of signal detection theory
as a means of describing and explaining recognition memory.
