The report that different types of explanations after false feedback in school children was accepted by the journal Cognitive Development. Verbal explanations prevented the previously observed drastic performance deterioration after stochastic color signal feedback. Apologies led children to discard the feedback, while admissions of lying led children to review previous trials. Positive reinforcement did not produce a systematic effect.

The manuscript of Lange-Küttner, C., Beckles, C.F., Ahmed, R.K., & Fisher, L.E. 'Rich and sparse figurative information in children’s memory for colorful places' has been accepted by the APA journal Developmental Psychology. We turned the conventional memory arrays inside out as in the retrieval array, places were colorful and placeholders were uniform black stars and compared it to the usual arrays with colorful individual shapes whose locations need to be remembered.
