The Science of False Memory

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines theoretical principles of false memory. It considers three early explanations of false memory: constructivism, a more detailed version of constructivism that is known as schema theory, and the source-monitoring framework. The dual-process tradition in memory research is discussed. The chapter then considers what, at present, is the modal approach to explaining false memories: opponent-processes theories.

Keywords:   constructivism, schema theory, source-monitoring framework, dual-process tradition, opponent-processes theories
