In the current chapter we are primarily interested in the mechanisms and processes underlying short-term recall. Short-term recall differs in many respects from long-term recall. In the first part of the chapter, we describe the unique characteristics of short-term recall, but also provide evidence that long-term memory influences short-term recall (Waugh & Norman, 1965). This necessitates the development of a model of short-term recall that incorporates both short-term and long-term effects. We then describe how Chappell and Humphreys' (1994) connectionist model of long-term memory might be adapted to handle short-term effects and then provide some empirical data that supports one of the unique features of this model.
