Planting False Childhood Memories in Children: The Role of Event Plausibility.
Pezdek, Kathy; Hodge, Danelle
Child Development, v70 n4 p887-95 Jul-Aug 1999
Tested role of event plausibility and script-relevant knowledge in events suggestively planted in memory of 5- to 7-year olds and 9- to 12-year olds. Found that the majority did not remember either false event. Significantly more children recalled the plausible but not the implausible false event; only one recalled the implausible but not plausible false event. Three younger children recalled both.
