Abstract and Keywords

In the present chapter, we provide a summary of the major features of the Selective Construction and Preservation of Experience (SCAPE) framework of memory (Whittlesea, 1997) and describe how that framework differs from many other conventional approaches to memory. We also provide a review of the past 15 years of research inspired by the SCAPE framework, organizing the discussion into the two primary functions of mind identified by that framework: the production function and the evaluation function. Under the function, we focus on the value of applying the SCAPE framework to explain immediate priming phenomena. Under the function, we identify the common processes underlying feelings of familiarity, recollective experiences, and other subjective judgments that people make in the context of nonremembering tasks. The broad goal of this discussion is to orient the reader to the impressive similarity in principles that guide mental functioning across a wide range of tasks and contexts.

Keywords: memory, immediate priming, transfer-appropriate processing, familiarity, recall, attribution
