Abstract

The basis for this study integrated the criminal justice system with the Attention Control Theory (ACT) to suggest changes in memory recall when a situation becomes stressful. The interaction between the variables will predict a memory recall decrease in written format compared to oral presentation when introduced to a stressful situation. In a non-stressful situation, presentation type will not influence memory recall. To test the hypotheses, participants will be divided into four groups to account for the two separate manipulations of stress and presentation method. All participants will read a story, then be presented with a quiz. Stress will be elicited by the researcher’s affiliation to the scores on the quiz. Participants will lastly recall details in a story either by verbal or written questioning and recall will be assessed. Analyses will be conducted using a 2x2 ANOVA test. Data findings and future research analyses will be explicated in discussion.
