Reality Monitoring of Performed and Imagined Interactive Events: Developmental and Contextual Effects.
Sussman, Amy L.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v79 n2 p115-38 Jun 2001
Compared reality monitoring of interactive events among children and adults. Found that 4-year-olds had more difficulty discriminating imagined actions than 12-year-olds and adults. Imagined actions were more often confused with performed ones than the reverse for 4- and 8-year-olds. Reality monitoring decreased over time. Object use during activity increased discrimination of imagined actions, especially after a 1 week delay. (Author/KB)
