Journals - How Accurate is Eyewitness Memory?
How Accurate is Eyewitness Memory?  Videoconference 
"We often take memory for granted until it fails us, and many times we are unaware of how our recollection may be inaccurate."


CITVC students spoke with Dr. Tabitha W. Payne, a cognitive psychologist and an assistant professor at Kenyon College, Ohio. She presented to students on the findings of memory research, focusing on how memory can be prone to error, and how this is especially important in our understanding of eyewitness accounts.

We participated in several pre-conference activities that tested our memories and we also consulted the following sources:
1) Info on the process of a criminal trial
2) General info on memory and how the brain works
3) Info on false memories
4) More info on false memories
