An examination of the ERP correlates of recognition memory using state-trace analysis.


There has been much debate in recent years as to whether recognition memory is best described using a single or dual process model. State-trace analysis provides an atheoretical approach to determining the number of underlying psychological variables, or processes, that mediate the effect of one or more independent variables on the measured dependent variables. Recently, state-trace analysis has shown strong support for a single process interpretation of the behavioral results from recognition memory experiments. In this paper, we demonstrate, using state-trace analysis, that both the behavioral and electrophysiological results from recognition memory experiments are also supportive of a single process interpretation.
