Retrieval was studied within the context of a retroactive inhibition paradigm to see if responses normally considered unavailable at recall could be recovered. The paradigm was A-B, A-C, with the design having two experimental groups each with a different amount of interpolated learning, and one control group. The retrieval method was 75 sec recall time for each item and retrieval instructions. Not all of the decrement was recovered by the retrieval technique, but the number of responses retrieved was more than double that obtained on a single trial at the A-B recall test.
