About the Authors
  • Adult Eyewitness Testimony provides an overview of current empirical research on eyewitness testimony and identification accuracy, covering both theory and application. The volume is organized to address three important issues: First, what are the cognitive, social, and physical factors that influence the accuracy of eyewitness reports? Second, how should lineups be constructed and verbal testimony be taken to improve the chances of obtaining accurate information? And third, whose testimony should be believed? Are there differences between accurate and inaccurate witnesses, and can jurors make such a distinction? Adult Eyewitness Testimony is crucial reading for memory researchers, as well as police officers, judges, lawyers, and other members of the judicial system. It will also be of interest to advanced undergraduates and graduate-level courses in applied social or cognitive psychology, criminal justice and forensics.

    • Suitable as reading on undergraduate or graduate courses in cognitive psychology and criminal justice
    • Of interest to all members of the judicial system who are involved in criminal court trials
