Counterfactual thinking and episodic memory in children.
I am interested in the ways that memories are altered when thinking counterfactually, Children as child witnesses are questioned in a way that requires them to use counterfactual reasoning to think about possible alternatives to their episodic memories. However, little is known about their abilities to think counterfactually and how it affects their memories. Without knowing the appropriate ways to question children as witnesses, children's statements tend to be ruled out as unreliable.
