(2008) demonstrated that survival processing produces a clear recall advantage. Words within the survival scenario were remembered more often. The size of this effect (partial eta-squared of .18) was similar to the original study (partial eta-squared of .20). Additionally, words within the survival scenario were rated as more relevant than words within the vacation scenario. We confirmed all previous results.</p> <hr> <p><a href="https://openscienceframework.org/project/jHKPe/files" rel="nofollow">Download the full report</a></p>
