A: Find out if questions asked subsequent to an event can cause a reconstruction in one's memory
P: 7 films showed, P's filled out questionnaire after each and gave an account of each. 1 Q. asked about the vehicle's speed using one of these words: hit, smashed, collided, bumped, contacted
F: smashed had an avg. speed estimate of 40.8 and contacted 31.8 (lowest)
C: Form of a question can markedly and systematically affect a witness' answer to the Q. - causes a change in the subject's memory representation of the accident
E: large sample size, BUT students used (non-representative), Lab, non-traumatic, non-generalisable, easy to replicate
SO: suggests memory from traumatic events is unreliable and can be altered by misleading info.
