(2015). P3 amplitude indexes the degree of similarity-based interference in memory retrieval during sentence comprehension. Poster presented at the 28th Annual CUNY Conference on Human Sentence Processing, Los Angeles, CA, USA.
Unitary memory models postulate a direct content-addressable (cuebased)
retrieval in working and longterm memory Cue-based retrieval suffers from similarity-based interference. It increases with increasing cue overlap. The P300 effect correlates with memory retrieval in non-linguistic tasks. Amplitude is modulated by the number of involved features. The present study: is the P300 amplitude sensitive to the degree of similarity-based
interference in memory retrieval during language comprehension? 2 ERP experiments investigated interference in memory retrieval in sluicing constructions
