Sutherland, Rachel; Pipe, Margaret-Ellen; Schick, Katherine; Murray, Janice; Gobbo, Camilla
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v84 n3 p244-63 Mar 2003
Examined influence of newly acquired information on 5- to 7-year-olds' memory and general representation of a personally experienced novel event. Found that advance information specific to the event led to better recall and better integration of the experience into a general event representation both soon after the event and 4 months later. General discussion of the topic without event-specific information neither enhanced memory nor facilitated integration of event information. (Author/KB)
