  • Arne Leif Ostergaard
A. L. Ostergaard (see PA, Vol 79:18418) developed the Maximum Memory Dependence model to estimate the maximum possible dependence that can result from memory-related variance in 2 memory measures. When applied to published studies, the model showed that memory-related variance could generally have produced only small effects on the overall contingency analysis. E. Tulving and C. A. Hayman (see PA, Vol 81:24304) claim that Ostergaard erred in estimating the study-related variance and suggest that he chose the wrong baseline performance level for calculating priming effects in the implicit memory tasks. The rationale for Ostergaard's method is presented here, showing that his baseline performance level was appropriate and that the estimates of priming advocated by Tulving and Hayman could lead to some strange conclusions about priming.
