The experimentwas designed to explore the effect of directed forgetting, by using messages related item as cues to indicate whether the presented item was a word to be forgotten (TBF) orto be remembered (TBR). When the perceptual feature of the words was used as cue, both recall and recognition memory were better for TBR than for TBF words, but when the semantic feature of the words was used as cue, only recall memory was better for TBR than for TBF words. In addition to these findings, the effect of directed forgetting in perceptual condition was more than that in semantic condition.
