Social contagion of memory
A new paradigm for studying false memories implanted by social influence, a process the authors call the social contagion of memory, is reported, where one person's memory can be infected by another person’s errors.
Explorations in the social contagion of memory
The data support the claim that false memories may be transmitted between people and reveal critical factors that modulate the social contagion of memories.
Expertise promotes facilitation on a collaborative memory task
Experts were more likely than non-experts to explicitly acknowledge partner contributions by repeating back previously made statements, as well as to further elaborate on concepts in those contributions, which suggest that expertise differentially impacts collaborative memory performance.
The roles of spreading activation and retrieval mode in producing false recognition in the DRM paradigm
Learning facts from fiction.
Age differences in collaborative memory: the role of retrieval manipulations
Age differences in collaborative inhibition are examined across repeated retrieval attempts to provide generality to the phenomenon of collaborative inhibition and can be explained by invoking concepts of strategy disruption and source monitoring.
Both young and older adults discount suggestions from older adults on a social memory test
Examination of the impacts of participant age and confederate age on social memory processes found that young adult participants were less likely to incorporate misleading suggestions from older adult confederates and more likely to report “remembering” items suggested by older adult Confederates.
The effect of information distribution on collaborative inhibition
The results of the experiments are discussed in relation to the retrieval strategy disruption hypothesis of collaborative inhibition and the role of social process variables, such as acknowledgement, in influencing collaborative inhibition across situations involving memory of shared and unshared information.

This article considers two nontraditional approaches for developing interventions to improve cognition in older adults that involves the activation of automatic processes through the formation of implementation intentions that enhance the probability that a desired action will be completed.
The effect of expertise on collaborative problem solving
An experiment in which participants with different levels of aviation expertise, experts, novices, and non-pilots, read flight problem scenarios of varying complexity and had to identify the problem and generate a solution with either another participant of the same level of expertise or alone.
