The Persistence of Procedural Memory for Content-Specific Prior Memory Operations

Abstract

Woltz and Was (2006, 2007) demonstrated persistent and sizable priming effects following simple processing of information in working memory. The results of these previous studies were interpreted as the demonstration of the strengthening of prior memory operations. In the current study, these priming effects were found to be present following minimum of a 24-hour delay between processing of information in working memory and measures of increased availability of long-term memory elements.
