Summary
Forensic psychologist Scott Fraser studies how humans remember crimes - and bear witness to them. In this powerful TEDTalk, which focuses on a deadly shooting at sunset, he suggests that even close-up eyewitnesses to a crime can create "memories" they could not have seen. Why? Because the brain abhors a vacuum.
