Abstract:

Prosecution often relies on complainants’ reports of particular instances of a crime. We investigated whether the first, last, or a distinct middle instance is remembered better than others. Adults listened to five similar stories and recalled each. The third story included a discrete or continuous deviation. In the discrete condition, something different happened at the beginning of the story and then the story proceeded normally. In the continuous condition, the deviation changed how the routine details were experienced. We found a primacy effect but not a recency effect. Only a continuous deviation led to better memory for the middle instance.
