  • Eye Witness Testimony - Applying Research
    • Cognitive interview developed to ensure narrative style interview by police
      • Recall everything from different perspectives and orders, recreate context
    • Context/State cued recall aided by recreation of scenes
    • Yuille and Cutshall showed police can be more confident in EWT even after passing of time
    • Weapons in scenes can affect recall
    • Police should not use verbs which imply direction
    • Open questions should be used
    • Certain words may trigger a schema that reconstructs memory
    • Judges should be aware eyewitnesses may not be accurate
