Remembering and Understanding: The Effects of Changes in Underlying Knowledge on Children's Recollections.
Greenhoot, Andrea Follmer
Child Development, v71 n5 p1309-28 Sep-Oct 2000
Explored influence of changes in kindergartners' knowledge about a protagonist on earlier constructed memories of the story. Found that children's story recall was affected by their prior impressions. Following the second knowledge manipulation, children revised story reports consistent with newly acquired impressions, suggesting that they had reconstructed their memories of previously heard stories.
