Priming Digit Strings

The two purposes of the research described in this chapter are to evaluate the priming of, and retrieval cues for, chunks in the first 10,000 decimal digits of pi. As we did in the memory search experiments, we concentrated on the first 10,000 decimal digits of pi because those digits have been extremely well learned by Rajan with the first 5,000 digits particularly well rehearsed.
