Abstract:   (2310 Views)
Two experiments investigated the false memory effect (the Deese - Roediger - McDermott paradigm) among the Iranian population. In experiment 1, subjects studied list of semantically associated words. In experiment 2 which was an extension of the afore - mentioned paradigm, lists of linedrawings of semantically associated words were presented. In both experiments, a high rate of false recall and false recognition was observed. The findings suggest that a) - the effect is replicable among the Iranian population and b) - it can be generalized to pictorial stimuli. The results are discussed in terms of the network theories.
