Abstract: In this talk I will draw on behavioural and electrophysiological data that is relevant to the question of how people interrogate their memories and perhaps prioritise some memory contents over others. For both forms of data, inferences about how people interrogate their memories are based on assessments of the cognitive operations to which new (unstudied) words are subjected during memory retrieval tasks. The findings point to fruitful ways in which investigations of memory retrieval processing can be pursued.
