In a repeated condition, each item is presented 5 times and each presentation duration is 400 ms. In a continuous condition, each item is presented just once, but the duration is for 2,000 ms. us, the total learning time

In the recognition phase, half of the participants are asked to respond within 750 ms to prevent adequate monitoring, while the other half are allowed to respond at their own pace and to make Remember/Know judgments. e results indicate that a false recognitions was most enhanced in the repeated condition, b false recognitions were not increased in the continuous condition, c false recognitions were higher in the repeated condition compared to the continuous condition, d false recognitions were not in uenced by the time-restricted and unrestricted contrast, and e false remember judgments tended to be enhanced in the repeated condition. ese ndings support the fuzzy-trace theory, rather than the activation-monitoring theory.
