I have designed this lab to explore false memories.
It is based on the DRM Paradigm...
The collection includes 7 versions, so that you can have some variety in your classes. Each lab has a different set of DRM words. The students collect the data, analyze and graph it.
There are versions where the students analyze the data based on sex and versions where they analyze the data based on age, and even a version were the students pick the testing conditions and a version where they come up with words in an attempt to create a false memory.
You can pick just one and duplicate it or you can print multiple copies of the versions so there is some variation in your classes.
When I demonstrate this in class the students are almost always amazed that they can experience a false memory.
The Deese–Roediger–McDermott (DRM) paradigm is a procedure in cognitive psychology used to study false memory in humans. The procedure was pioneered by James Deese in 1959, but it was not until Henry L. Roediger III and Kathleen McDermott extended the line of research in 1995 that the paradigm became popular. The procedure typically involves the oral presentation of a list of related words (e.g. bed, rest, awake, tired, dream, wake, snooze, blanket, doze, slumber, snore, nap, peace, yawn, drowsy) and then requires the subject to remember as many words from the list as possible.
