Abstract : Experiments were conducted to determine whether isolating the stimulus term or the response term of a paired associate has the same effect on learning as isolating an item in a serial list. Two techniques for producing isolation were used, color and low meaningfulness. Results indicated that when the stimulus term of a paired associate was isolated through color or low meaningfulness, or its response term was isolated through color, learning of the pair was facilitated. When the response term was isolated through low meaningfulness learning of the pair was retarded. (Author)
