This article presents information on associate processes of memory and nature of the effect of verbal labels on recognition memory for form. It has been shown that learning to associate verbal labels with form stimuli results in superior recognition memory performance and that reproduction memory is inferior to recognition memory for form. The differences between these two memory tasks, however, go beyond a simple comparison of the number of stimuli correctly remembered. Reproduction studies have consistently reported evidence for changes in qualitative aspects of a subject's memory form stimuli.

Two predictions made by fuzzy trace theorists were tested. First, recollection rejection should likely occur when verbatim traces are available...
