Three experiments investigated the effects of test-induced priming (TIP) on false recognition in the Deese/Roediger-McDermott procedure. In Experiment 1, TIP significantly increased false recognition for participants who made old/new decisions at test but not for participants who made remember/know judgements or were given diagnostic information to help them avoid false recognition. In Experiment 2, a TIP effect was observed with old/new recognition but not when participants were required to remember whether study items were spoken by a male or a female. In Experiment 3, false recognition increased when critical lures were preceded by ten studied items but not when preceded by five studied and five unstudied items from the same list. These findings suggest that TIP increases false recognition by disrupting source monitoring processes.
