The modern development of cognitive psychology was due to the WWII focuss on research on human performance and attention, developments in computer science, especially those in artificial intelligence, and the renewal of interest in the field of linguistics.

(1998), “Contrary to the underlying assumption of the TW [Tulving-Wiseman] function, recognition failure is not the norm in the recognition-failure paradigm; rather, it is the exception.” For example, recognition failure is almost non-existent when the item to be recognised, “is sufficiently unfamiliar so that it is essentially a novel item” (Lian et al., 1998, p. 701).
