Journal Article
Wyer, N. A., Neilens, H., Perfect, T. J., & Mazzoni, G. (2011). Automatic and ironic behavior are both mediated by changes in the self-concept. Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, 47(6), 1300-1303. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jesp.2011.05.008

Recent accounts suggest that prime-to-behavior effects are mediated by changes to the active self-concept. Likewise, recent reports of post-suppression behavioral rebound have attributed changes to behavior to changes in the self-concept. According t...

Personalized and not general suggestion produces false autobiographical memories and suggestion-consistent behavior (2011)
Journal Article
Scoboria, A., Mazzoni, G., Jarry, J. L., & Bernstein, D. M. (2012). Personalized and not general suggestion produces false autobiographical memories and suggestion-consistent behavior. Acta Psychologica, 139(1), 225-232. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.actpsy.2011.10.008

Suggesting false childhood events produces false autobiographical beliefs, memories and suggestion-consistent behavior. The mechanisms by which suggestion affects behavior are not understood, and whether false beliefs and memories are necessary for s...

"It's a hair-dryer...No, it's a drill" Misidentification-related false recognitions in younger and older adults (2011)
Journal Article
Vannucci, M., Mazzoni, G., Marchetti, I., & Lavezzini, F. (2012). "It's a hair-dryer...No, it's a drill" Misidentification-related false recognitions in younger and older adults. Archives of Gerontology and Geriatrics, 54(2), 310-316. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.archger.2011.06.026

Memory for visual objects, although typically highly accurate, can be distorted, especially in older adults. Here we asked whether also erroneous identifications of visual objects subsequently corrected and replaced by a correct identification might...

Both differences in encoding processes and monitoring at retrieval reduce false alarms when distinctive information is studied (2011)
Journal Article
Hanczakowski, M., & Mazzoni, G. (2011). Both differences in encoding processes and monitoring at retrieval reduce false alarms when distinctive information is studied. Memory, 19(3), 280-289. https://doi.org/10.1080/09658211.2011.558514

A reduction in false alarms to critical lures is observed in the DRM paradigm (Roediger & McDermott, 1995) when distinctive information is presented at encoding. Two mechanisms have been proposed to account for this reduction. According to the mo...

Lack of control enhances accurate and inaccurate identification responses to degraded visual objects (2011)
Journal Article
Vannucci, M., Mazzoni, G., & Cartocci, G. (2011). Lack of control enhances accurate and inaccurate identification responses to degraded visual objects. Psychonomic bulletin & review, 18(3), 524-530. https://doi.org/10.3758/s13423-011-0083-z

Recent studies have shown that lack of control induces illusory pattern perception. In this study, we demonstrate that lacking control also affected identification responses to degraded pictures of visual objects. As compared with control participant...
