Document Summary

How do we study eyewitness issues: can be studied using archival data, examining police at a crime scene, or interviewing witnesses after police have done their job; lab studies are also done. The laboratory simulation: participants view a staged crime either on video or in person w/out knowing they will be questioned on it after, there are many manipulated variables in the study, but only 3 dependent variables. If more than one identification is made by the witness, the likely hood of the guilt of the suspect increases with more identifications being made. Estimator variable research in recognition memory (age, race and weapon focus) Age: older adults make similar correct ids as younger ppl, but have more difficulty making a correct rejections decision. Expert testimony on eyewitness: some experts agree that lineup/interview procedures and confidence-accuracy r/s have had enough reliable evidence to be questioned in court, others say that the studies w/ eyewitnesses is not valid and lacks theory.
