Therefore, the inclusion condition is the same as a traditional cued-recall task. Under inclusion conditions controlled (C) and automatic (A) memory processes operate in concert; thus, the probability of completing a stem with a target word is the additive probabilities of controlled memory processing (C) and of the word automatically coming to mind (A) when recollection fails (1 – C). Therefore inclusion = C + A (1 – C). Under exclusion conditions, subjects are again required to use the stem as a cue to recall a studied word, but this time they are asked to avoid using a studied word to complete the stem, if they are unable to recall a studied word they are again required to complete the stem with the first word that comes to mind.

Nevertheless, it is notable that patients with AD in these three studies did in fact complete more stems with target words than unstudied/baseline words under inclusion conditions. Thus it might be plausible to conclude that the AD patients did actually demonstrate some capacity for controlled retrieval. However, the performance of the AD groups under exclusion conditions indicates that this conclusion is likely to be invalid. Under exclusion conditions, the aim of the task is to recall studied words then complete the test stem with an alternative word.
