Summary:
In the current experiment, a group of 10-year-olds and a group of young adults watched a series of short video clips of different women performing different actions. One week later, participants were tested on their ability to discriminate the old videos from distracter videos, which included new actor/old action videos, new action/old actor videos, novel combinations of familiar actors and actions, as well as entirely new videos. The results provide evidence that the ability to accurately bind actors with their actions reaches adult levels by age 10. The results are discussed in terms of the brain areas involved in memory binding tasks, as well as implications for various areas of study within forensic psychology, particularly unconscious transference.
