Summary
Eyewitness testimony remains one of the most important sources of evidence in criminal investigations. Even in cases where there is only eyewitness evidence, 75 percent result in a conviction. This three-section program weighs the reliability of eyewitness testimony and what this reveals about the nature of memory itself. It also examines the concept of schemas and the nature of constructive memory, illustrates the effect of leading questions and the planting of false information, and looks at three ways to improve eyewitness testimony: the cognitive interview, police reconstructions, and hypnosis.
