Many studies have been examining effects of sleep loss on developing false memory. Yet, its role in ?lost-in-the-mall' memory implantation has not been discerned. This study will investigate impact of sleep durations on vulnerability to false memory implantation, in university students. Shorter sleep is hypothesized to result in higher confidence and clarity of implanted memory. Participants will be 900 undergraduate students from Monash University. Participants will be students self-report with <6hours sleep/night (short sleepers) or >9hours sleep/night (long sleepers). Participants will complete booklet on four narratives of events (three true and one false) and rate confidence and clarity after second interview.

Short sleepers (<6hours/night) will have greater clarity and confidence ratings on implanted memory than long sleepers (>9hours/night). Shorter sleep impairs reality monitoring in brain frontal region, undermining ability to discriminate real life events and external sources. It was found that sleep quality and quantity have direct effects on recall of implanted memory among individuals.
