in order to explore the cognitive processes underlying false and veridical recognition memory in young and old adults, a new false memory task was developed. Pictorial representations of items belonging to categories such as kitchen utensils and musical instruments were collated. A large scale validation allowed non-presented "critical distractors" (CDs) to be grouped into high, medium or low structural similarity with respect to the other items in their category.
