In a study with 62 high school seniors, Ss instructed to form mental images while reading a 2,000-word textbook-like passage learned no more than those merely asked to read carefully. On a postexperiment questionnaire, more than 1/2 of the control group reported using imagery, while about 1/3 of the experimental group did not use imagery. Amount of learning was directly related to the amount of time during which imagery was reportedly used. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
