Contrasting effects of repetition across tasks: implications for understanding the nature of refractory behavior and models of semantic memory.

Abstract:

We describe a patient (J.M.) who showed "refractory" behavior in picture-word matching tasks--that is, his performance became poorer when items were repeated. This contrasts with the facilitatory effects of repetition usually observed in normal participants. We show for the first time that there can be facilitatory effects of repetition on some tasks, even though refractory behavior is shown on the same items in other tasks. In particular, in Experiments 1 and 2, we demonstrate that J.M. show...
