Individuals, and both collaborative and non-collaborative pairs, trios, and quartets studied Deese–Roediger–McDermott (Deese, 1959; Roediger & McDermott, 1995) word lists. Veridical and false recognition increased with group size and were greatest for the collaborative groups. Moreover, only the collaborative group members had enhanced levels of veridical and false recognition when later tested individually.
