Read Chapter 3 of the text and watch the Connect video “How the Misinformation Effect Influences Memories.” In your initial post, address the following:
- Reflect on an occasion when your recollection of a particular memory became less accurate because of post-event information. What were the contributing factors?
- In what ways has the explosion of technology and media/social media contributed to how the misinformation effect has become more prevalent in today’s world?
- Suggestibility (the influence of others’ expectations on our memory) and misattribution (information attributed to an incorrect source) raise several ethical concerns. What are some that you can think of?
