Note the influence of imagination over the actual memory of a performed event. This seems to hold across familiar and non-familiar actions - relevant to knowledge elicitation. If you get people to imagine badly, they will report badly.
They also note the power of imaging past actions; very close and personal stimuli and feedback interactions in the person's head. May be part of a feedback loop.
Another key factor here:
This is the key here to me, not regarding false memories, but regarding actual memories. Such an idea lends further weight to the fact that elicitation is enhanced by personal recollection, but may be further confounded if the personal recollection has edits introduced. So, we have a mechanism here for the noise involved in recollection, especially that which is false, not just knocked out due to functional problems, such as random memory lapses.
They note that use of media may provide a low-cognitive organisation environment, compared to abstract representations, such as text. This may lead, in fact, to more inaccuracy, as errors are amplified by the nature of the immersion involved.
Their summation indicates that children are affected by false narratives, even in a passive viewing, non-interactive manner, with the IVET. This indicates a predictable effect on people of experiencing false stories in IVETs, and leads to the conclusion that such environments should be used with caution, but that they hold promise in enabling better recall, if the stimuli are accurate.
