Abstract: The fact that engaging in a cognitive task before a recognition task increases the probability of “old” responses is known as the revelation effect. We used several cognitive tasks to examine whether the feeling of resolution, a key construct of the occurrence mechanism of the revelation effect, is related to the occurrence of the revelation effect. The results show that the revelation effect was not caused by a visual search task, which elicited the feeling of resolution, but caused by an unsolvable anagram task and an articulatory suppression task, which did not elicit the feeling of resolution. These results suggest that the revelation effect is not related to the feeling of resolution. Moreover, the revelation effect was likely to occur in participants who performed poorly on the recognition task. The result suggests that the revelation effect is inclined to occur when people depend more on familiarity than on recollection process.

再認判断の歪みである「リベレーション効果」に関する研究です。リベレーション効果は、認知課題に取り組んだ直後に再認判断を行うと、その「old (学習フェイズで見た)」判断率が上昇するという効果です。本研究では、認知課題が解けたという感覚がなくても、リベレーション効果が生起することを示しました。また、再認成績の悪い実験参加者の方が、成績の良い参加者に比べてリベレーション効果が生起しやすいという、本効果の生起不生起の個人差も示しました。
