Abstract: Although much is known about the dynamics ofmemory search in the free recall task, relatively little isknown about the factors related to recall termination. Rean-alyzing individual trial data from 14 prior studies (1,079participants in 28,015 trials) and defining termination asoccurring when a final response is followed by a longnonresponse interval, we observed that termination proba-bility increased throughout the recall period and that retriev-al was more likely to terminate following an error thanfollowing a correct response. Among errors, terminationprobability was higher following prior-list intrusions andrepetitions than following extralist intrusions. To verify thatthis pattern of results can be seen in a single study, we reporta new experiment in which 80 participants contributed recalldata from a total of 9,122 trials. This experiment replicatedthe pattern observed in the aggregate analysis of the priorstudies.
