A new study led by Professor Robert Logie (Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences) reviewed more than 100 previous research studies with adults that investigated the different ways in which people remember words, letters, numbers and pictures. This research highlights a range of different mental processes linked to memory that are used in different ways to perform similar tasks, which could be used to help people recall information more readily. The study is published in the Journal of Applied Research in Memory and Cognition.
