Jones, G., & Macken, B. (2015). Questioning short-term memory and its measurement: Why digit span measures long-term associative learning. Cognition, 1441-13. doi:10.1016/j.cognition.2015.07.009

This article provides information on verbal short-term memory. Also, it explains the differences in performance for different types of verbal material by the inherent characteristics of the verbal items making up memory sequences.

(2009). Post-event information affects children’s autobiographical memory after one year. Law And Human Behavior, 33(4), 344- 355. doi:10.1007/s10979-008-9147-7

Based on this article two experiments were conducted. Experiment 1 was given to children ages 4-6 and memory test was given 15 months later.

This was used on a large group of people. The second investigation was related between discrimination ability and response bias for two false memory. DRM can lead information affecting the phenomenon of a person’s recollection of a witnessed event that can be misleading information about the event. On the other hand, different techniques have also been shown to explain different types of false memories. The goal of this study should help to clarify the relationship between two types of false memories (encouraging by misinformation and DRM).This was a great source that will make my research so much better. It had statistics and results and very detailed information. This research wasn 't biased because the study was based on a large group of
