Dissociating Automatic and Intentional Processes in Children's Eyewitness Memory.
Holliday, Robyn E.; Hayes, Brett K.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v75 n1 p1-42 Jan 2000
Two experiments investigated the contribution of automatic and intentional memory processes to 5- and 8-year-olds' acceptance of misinformation either read to them or self-generated from semantic and perceptual hints. Results from recognition tests conducted under two instructional conditions suggested that both automaticity and recollection influenced misinformation acceptance, but the role of automatic processes declined with age.
