When the studies on implicit memory tests are examined, it can be seen that word stem completion (Crabb & Dark, 1999; McCauley, Eskes & Moscovitch, 1996), word fragment completion (McDermott & Roediger, 1994; Rajaram & Roediger, 1993; Weldon, 1991), and perceptual identification (Rajaram & Roediger, 1993; Weldon, 1991) are widely used in perceptual implicit memory tests.
