The Inhibitory Control in Forgetting Process
Although many evidences from overt behavioral control have already suggested that inhibitory control mechanism is important in this process, many recent researches show that this mechanism is also important in the internal memory control. Both retrieval-induced forgetting and intentional forgetting suggest that inhibitory control mechanism operates to serve the function of forgetting by route deactivation or item-suppression. However, there are still some differences of the inhibitory control mechanism in these paradigms, such as whether the inhibitory control mechanism is recruited intentionally or unintentionally, and the way in which inhibitory control mechanisms do. So, future research should pay more attention to the difference of inhibitory mechanism in the behavior and memory control, the factors which influence the mode action of the mechanism, the interaction of the emotion and the memory control, and the individual difference of the inhibitory control in the memory control.
