This chapter explores false-memory effects that fall out as predictions from the opponent-processes ideas discussed in Chapter 3. If opponent-processes distinctions provide the correct take on false memory, then armed with those distinctions, we should be able to exercise considerable control over false memories by predicting the sorts of variables that will increase or decrease them. The variables and predicted effects considered come from laboratory studies of false memory in adults, studies that make use of materials such as word lists, picture lists, or sentence lists that present those materials under controlled conditions, and that measure false memory under controlled conditions.

Keywords:   false memory, opponent processes, sentennce lists, word lists, picture lists
