"Recall of various aspects of an unfamiliar place was studied under incidental and intentional conditions. We also investigated whether lack of item details in subjects' verbal reports could be attributed either to a lack of coding or to a communicative setting not requtring their mention at the retrieval stage. The results showed that subjects passing through a place intentionally remembered furniture items better than structural elements while no such difference was observed in the incidental condition. Furthermore, qualitative analysis of data revealed a distinction between a "grouping" and a "tour" recall strategy."
