STEIN, Lilian Milnitsky; FEIX, Leandro da Fonte and ROHENKOHL, Gustavo. Methodological advances in false memory research: development and norming of DRM procedure. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2006, vol.19, n.2, pp. 166-176. ISSN 0102-7972. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722006000200002.
The Roediger e McDermott, (1995) Word List Paradigm has been widely used as a powerful experimental technique to investigate false memories. Two studies were designed with the purpose of developing and creating norms for lists of semantically related words for Brazilian Portuguese. Study 1 (n=426) describes the process of generating 44 word lists, including eight emotional lists. Study II (n=471) provides the first normative data on false memories production using the lists developed in the first study. Normative data includes two memory-testing conditions: free recall and recognition. Results indicate the effectiveness of the word lists paradigm for studying false memories.
