Context-Dependent Memory and Chewing Gum
MetadataShow full item record
Context-dependent memory refers to improved recall of specific episodes or information when the context present at encoding and retrieval are the same. The effects that chewing gum has on memory during the encoding phase have been studied many times with contrasting results. Some studies show evidence that chewing gum while encoding and during recall may improve performance and other studies show no effect. The current study sought to replicate and extend previous research. Results showed no support for the context-dependent memory phenomenon.
