Eyewitness Memory

Expert WITNESS AND CONSULTANT

Psychological Research on Eyewitness Memory | Scientific psychological research on eyewitness memory grew out of cognitive psychological research on perception and memory and social psychological research on social influence.  Some of the earliest research on eyewitness memory was conducted more than 100 years ago.  Interest in research on eyewitness memory gained momentum with the growing realization that many wrongfully convicted individuals were mistakenly identified by confident – but incorrect – eyewitnesses.

 

Are you concerned that your client may have been mistakenly identified as a crime perpetrator or implicated in a crime due to faulty eyewitness testimony?  Does eyewitness testimony figure prominently in your civil case?  Our new Eyewitness Evidence Evaluation Clinic can assist by performing an evaluation of your eyewitness evidence and identify the psychological factors that can increase or decrease the risk of mistaken eyewitness identification or recall.
