by Tallman, Morgan, M.A., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2020, 69; 27957487
Abstract (Summary)

Many studies have examined factors likely to affect the creation of false memories. While some studies find that the emotion levels in the content influence false memory, other studies have found that a participant's mood can influence false memory. Shame and guilt are two mood states that have never been explored in relation to false memory. This paper delves explores whether state or trait levels of shame and guilt are more likely to increase false memory by utilizing a picture paradigm memory task. Two ANCOVAs revealed no main effects or interactions of shame- or guilt-proneness, or a shame, guilt, or neutral mood state on false memory.
