What are the effects of testing on eyewitness’ susceptibility to subsequent central and peripheral misinformation?

Abstract:

Research on the misinformation effect has illustrated the ease with which eyewitness memory can be altered. Research on the testing effect has also demonstrated that testing memory can enhance retention. Chan et al. (2009) reported that, surprisingly, taking an immediate test over a witnessed event increased eyewitnesses’ susceptibility to later misinformation—termed retrieval-enhanced suggestibility (RES). In three experiments, we examined the generalizability of RES with different materials. We then tested the boundary conditions for RES, investigated its influence on central and peripheral information, and tested whether it can be obtained in different types of tests (free recall vs. cued recall).
