Modernising the misinformation effect: the development of a new stimulus set



Researchers studying the misinformation effect tend to present the event in one of two formats: slides or video. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

We capitalised on digital technology to create a misinformation event that resolves many of the limitations inherent in earlier formats. Copyright © 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
