Commercial cognitive/memory systems: A case study

Von O. Leirer, Elizabeth Decker Tanke, Daniel G. Morrow

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Commercial cognitive/memory systems are products that enhance human cognition and memory. Using one of our own product developments as a case study, we describe three phases of commercial systems development and evaluation. We review published examples of Phase One research, report two quasi‐experimental investigations that are representative of successful Phase Two research, and provide some measures used to assess the product's success in the early stages of Phase Three. Finally, we discuss the use of theories and findings from basic research in cognitive psychology to develop products of value to individuals and society.
