The aim of this study was to examine the effect of preparation on the characteristics of “internal” (imagined) and “external” (real) memories. Following recent research (Alonso-Quecuty, 1992; Suengas & Johnson, 1988) it was hypothesized that: 1) memory descriptions from a real event would be differents in a series of features than memory descriptions from an imagined event; 2) memory descriptions from a real event in the preparation condition would contain more sensorial and contextual details and more internal characteristics (in terms of the Johnson & Raye, 1981, reality monitoring) than subjects in the no-preparation condition; 3) statements of subjects asked to prepare a report of an imagined event should contain more external characteristics than the imagined memories of subjects who do not receive instructions about preparing their statements. The results confirmed partially the hypotheses.
