  17. ABSTRACT:
    Aim of this experiment was to investigate the effect of leading questions on the memory, simply
    put – how wording of a question can trigger cognitive processes which will modify one’s memory
    information. This experiment was a replication of the study conducted by Loftus and Palmer
    (1974). In the experiment the independent variable (IV) was the wording of the questions:
    “Please estimate the speed of the cars when they contacted/crashed into each other?” and “Was
    there any broken glass when cars or contacted/crashed into each other?” The dependent
    variable (DV) was the estimation of speed upon memory retrieval (information they obtained
    watching the video of a car crash). Procedure was very simple – after watching the information,
    there was some distraction period and then they were asked questions which they answered. One
    week after, they were asked another question. The results were as expected. They showed that
    wording of a question can affect retrieved memory.
    Therefore, it can be concluded that this study was in line with the one conducted by Loftus and
    Palmer (1974) from which can be derived that words led to specific answer. Hence, answer was
    result of reconstructive kind of memory, wording of the question and existing schemas of
    participants.
    NOTE TO SELF:
    This is the very first IA in psychology I've ever written, so I'd strongly advise for you to take it as something your IA should NOT look like =))
