In a directed forgetting task with pigeons, subjects tend to (recall/not recall) a stimulus that had been followed by a “forget” cue.

Answer & Explanation (1)

Explanation
"Recall" is incorrect
"Not recall" is correct
In various experiments, it was found that if certain hints are provided to the human or non-human subjects to forget a certain kind of learning, the subjects will not be able to recall the material and will exhibit a poorer memory. Suppose a bird is shown a red card, which indicated that the learned information need not to be remembered. A blue card was also shown that indicated that the learned information must be remembered. The bird is most likely to perform worst when it was asked to recall the memory from the red card situation.

In directed forgetting, an organism follows an instructor's directions and forgets about the previous learning when given a cue for that.
