Elaboration and Distinctiveness in Episodic Memory

In keeping with the general theme of the Uppsala Conference on Memory, this chapter gives a broad overview of our current ideas about human memory and related processes. The ideas stem more or less from the "levels of processing" view of memory advanced by Craik and Lockhart (1972). More directly, however, the present views develop the notions discussed by Lockhart, Craik, and Jacoby (1976) and by Jacoby and Craik (1978).
