Abstract
The present study investigated the effects of modality (method of presentation) on false memory. It was hypothesized that an auditory format (audio tape) would produce a significantly greater incidence of false memory than a visual format (PowerPoint). A convenience sample of 33 undergraduate students participated in this experiment. The participants either viewed a set of word lists on a PowerPoint presentation or listened to the same word lists on audio tape. Each list was followed by a 2-minute recognition task. An independent samples t-test revealed no significant differences in recognition between the two modalities.
