Francoeur, which appeared in the March 1999 issue of "Journal of Experimental Psychology". The paper shows that the research examined how, whether and to what extent mothers could remember conversations with their small children and suggested implications for forensic uses by adults of childhood reports.

"Dependent variables for transcript recognition had to do with (1) the accuracy of mothers' identification or "detection" of each of the independent variables in a transcript, plus (1a) identification of whether surface-structure change was of speaker attribution or of switching of spontaneous and prompted response; and (2) accuracy of mothers' corrections of independent variables identified as inaccurate, plus (2a) accuracy of mothers' changes of speaker attribution and/or whether a response had been spontaneous or prompted."
