Testifying in court regarding the accuracy of eyewitnesses
Imagine that you are an expert witness testifying in court regarding the accuracy of eyewitnesses. In this context, explain the misinformation effect and how it might lead an eyewitness to incorrectly recall the details of an event. Apply your response to an original example. Your response needs to demonstrate a thorough understanding of false memories and the factors that contribute to them. Use the brain and memory functions, and its ability to recall and recognize. Also explain the memory and traumatic events and eyewitness testimony.
