Abstract

This study predicted that chewing mint gum would impact a student’s serial recall or ability to recall items in the order given. This study used thirty participants in a between-subjects design, with 15 males and 15 females (M= 20 years, SD= 1.00). Participants were randomly assigned to chew either flavorless gum, mint gum, or no gum during the time of learning the items presented and recalling the same items presented in order. Participants chewing the mint flavored gum recalled items presented more accurately than participants with no gum or flavorless. These results suggest that chewing mint gum increases serial recall.
