Young Children's Understanding of Conflicting Mental Representation Predicts Suggestibility.
Welch-Ross, Melissa K.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v33 n1 p43-53 Jan 1997
Examined the relation between developmental suggestibility effects and preschoolers' emerging ability to reason about conflicting mental representations. Subjects were 42 three- to five-year-olds. Found in the children significant initial encoding and ability to retrieve event details. Also found an integration between children's theory of mind and source monitoring that may explain early developmental changes in suggestibility. (MOK)
