I love Data Visualisation.

A creative and innovative graduate student currently studying for Master of Science - Psychology in London. With previous training at Modelling in Informatics Lab in Taiwan and experiences in doing research. Our lab focuses on using informatic tools to solve social psychological issues. I have great passion for organizing and managing data. Specialized in R, Javascript and familiar with Python, PHP. I favor customized tools and is self-learning d3 library for more flexibility. I am currently searching for opportunities in data analysis and data visualisation in London. My recent research focus is on human perception and attention as well as information processing. I dream to apply cognitive psychology into designing data visualisations for accurate information to be more efficiently processed by readers. Apart from my professions I enjoy reading, jogging and playing the violin in my freetime.

Retrieval-Induced Forgetting Phenomena: A meta-analysis


“Within-individual Retrieval-induced Forgetting” (WI-RIF) refers to the phenomenon that an individual’s selective retrieval of items (Rp+) often causes more forgetting of categorically related and yet unrehearsed items (Rp-) than categorically unrelated and unrehearsed items (Nrp). WI-RIF has been also reported in social settings as “Socially-shared Retrieval-induced Forgetting” (SS-RIF). For example, when a group of people mention parts of their shared experience in conversations, both speakers and listeners suffer from forgetting of related and yet unmentioned memory.

We conducted meta-regression on 59 studies.


Overall results show the Practice Effect is negatively correlated to the Suppression Effect when the practice session were free conversations (blue dots).

Memorability Bias: The more memorable the material, the more likely it is to be mentioned in a conversation and to be subsequently remembered (Cue et al., 2007).

Therefore, we are interested to test Memorability Bias under both free conversation and non-free conversation practice sessions.

Our hypothesis is the large effect size of Socially-shared Retrieval-induced Frogetting under free-conversations and the negative correlation is due to the effect of Memorability Bias.

We further test this hypothesis by conducting experiments.

The Underlying Mechanism of Socially-Shared Retireival-Induced Forgetting

Conducting experiment on a young group of people aged between 20~35, and an older group aged above 60. The results as following aligned to the meta-analysis.

The figure below shows that the more memorable the item, the more likely it is to be recalled during practice, becoming a Rp+ items, whereas the less memorable items are less recalled during practice. Therefore, becomes Rp- items more often. So apart from the RIF effect, the Memorability Bias is having an affect on the large effect size.
