The ontogeny and durability of true and false memories: a fuzzy trace account.

Abstract

Fuzzy-trace theory has been developed by Brainerd and Reyna (1998, this issue) to explain a variety of findings. Here we explore the way that fuzzy-trace theory handles three phenomena concerning the creation and maintenance of false memories. We show that fuzzy-trace theory can account for seemingly paradoxical findings, thus providing theoretical clarity that has heretofore been lacking in the developmental literature.
