Memory Suggestibility and Metacognition in Child Eyewitness Testimony: The Roles of Source Monitoring and Self-Efficacy.
Mazzoni, Giuliana
European Journal of Psychology of Education, v13 n1 p43-60 Mar 1998
Examines mechanisms underlying the misinformation effect, in which children can be made to believe that they have seen or experienced something they never have. Suggests that the effect in younger children is mainly due to memory errors, whereas in older children it is mainly due to acceptance of misleading information. (DSK)
