Yes, I Can Or "No, I Can't" - Effect of Extraneous Affirmation- and Negation-Evoking Contexts on Brand Recall Memory: the Role of Semantic Activations

In five experiments, we demonstrate that entirely extraneous brand placement contexts that evoke a negation (vs. affirmation) lead to impaired brand recall. We also demonstrate this using embodied cognition. Motivation to remember moderates the phenomenon. Finally, using spreading semantic activation, we demonstrate the psychological mechanism associated with such negation-induced forgetting.
