Description

In order to carry out studies of false memories in Colombia, we have been carrying out free association studies with Colombian participants for the last 3 years. With these data, we will create DRM lists suitable for its application with Colombian participants. Our experiment will compare the levels of false memories of Colombian and Spanish participants against lists created in the same variant or in a different variant. We will manipulate the type of coding that the participants will use. We hope to find results that show significantly different levels of false memories when using one or the other material, which opens the door to an interesting line of research explored so far.
