Dewhurst, Stephen A.; Anderson, Rachel J.; Grace, Lydia; Howe, David – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Three experiments investigated the relationship between future thinking and false memories. In Experiment 1, participants remembered familiar events (e.g., a holiday) from their past, imagined planning the same events in the future, or took part in a control condition in which they visualized typical events.
