Half of a group of 46 younger and 45 older adults watched a slide sequence once (one-trial learning), the other repeatedly (criterion learning). Three weeks later, they were asked questions with misleading information. When event memory was poor for older adults in the criterion group, they were more suggestible. In one-trial learning, younger adults were more suggestible. (Contains 36 references.) (JOW)
