|Title:||Opposite developmental trends for false recognition of basic and superordinate names|
Albuquerque, Pedro Barbas
Basic and superordinate levels.
|Abstract(s):||This study investigated the development of false memories for basic and superordinate names using the DRM procedure. Two experiments were conducted with younger (3 5 years old) and older (10 12 years old) children. In the first experiment the DRM procedure was used with categorised lists and in the second experiment both types of lists*categorised and associative*were applied. False recognition for basic and superordinate names showed opposite developmental trends, regardless of list type. False recognition increased for critical-basic items and decreased for critical-superordinate items with age. These opposing results are mainly explained by age differences in conceptual knowledge and editing processes.|
