REPRESENTATIONAL CHANGE

A change in the beliefs surrounding an object or idea. When confronted with an item about which one belief was held, that belief may change to fit the actuality of the object, while still recalling the initial belief.

REPRESENTATIONAL CHANGE: "Representational change accounts for knowing that one once held a different belief regarding an object or idea, while also understanding that one has since acquired a new new belief."
