Abstract [en]

Proposes a conceptual frame of reference for memory research on the basis of 2 recent lines of development: (1) considering function rather than structure and (2) considering distributed rather than localized storage. Remembering is seen as an interaction between cognitive capabilities and demands of the task. Encoding is viewed as an interaction between affordances of the environment and functional dispositions of the individual. Retrieval is seen as a reactivation of functional dispositions. The viability of the overall conceptual framework is demonstrated in 3 experimental studies using 65 undergraduates
