Psycholinguistic frameworks provide contemporary accounts of immediate serial recall (e.g., N. Martin & Saffran, 1997; R. C. Martin, Lesch, & Bartha, 1999). These models emphasise the inclusion of semantic/associative and phonological representations in verbal short-term memory but have difficulty explaining how serial order is represented and maintained. Conversely, computational models of immediate serial recall (e.g., Brown, Preece, & Hulme, 2000; Henson, 1998b; Lewandowsky & Farrell, 2008b; Page & Norris, 1998) have typically concentrated on the role of temporary episodic representations on short-term recall but have trouble accounting for the influence of multiple representations on performance. The aim of this research was to combine these two lines of research to form a more integrative approach to immediate serial recall. The intention was to contribute to current understandings of verbal short-term memory by exploring how the binding of semantic/associative, phonological and episodic representations would influence immediate serial recall...
