Semantic Integration of Verbal Information Into a Visual Memory
Loftus, Elizabeth F.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory, 4, 1, 19-31, Jan 78
1,242 subjects, in five experiments plus a pilot study, saw a series of slides depicting a single auto-pedestrian accident. These experiments investigate how information supplied after an event influences a witness's memory for that event. Results suggest that information supplied a witness after an event, whether inconsistent or misleading, is integrated into the witness's memory of the event. (Editor/RK)
