Abstract : Immediate recall of sets of digits, letters, and colour or shape names presented aurally resembled recall of visual material in the effects of material and message length, but more items were recalled when the messages were presented faster, in contrast to visual presentation. Vocal rehearsal during presentation reduced recall. Ten Ss were tested for each comparison. (Author)
