Children's Memory for Atypical Actions in Script-Based Stories: Evidence for a Disruption Effect.
Hudson, Judith A.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v46 n2 p159-73 Oct 1988
Examined preschool and first-grade children's recall and recognition memory for two types of atypical actions: irrelevancies and disruptions, and for script actions (schemata). Children recalled disruptions better than irrelevancies in stories about familiar events, especially with delayed recall. Script actions were least well recalled. (SKC)
