Description: This project examined the influence of semantic neighbourhood density on new vocabulary learning, before and after opportunities for consolidation. We tested new word memory on the same day as learning, the next day, and one week later. Experiment S1 examined word learning in adults. Experiment 1 examined word learning in children. Experiment 2 sought to reduce performance levels in adults to aid in interpreting differences between Experiment 1 and 2 results. These experiments were presented in Emma James' PhD thesis, and a manuscript draft is in preparation.
