Real-life memory distortions, especially as they apply to legal settings
I am interested in how we can come to believe we saw or did something that we never did, and how we decide whether our memories are true or false. I have testified in court and consulted with defence attorneys on the legal implications for these issues (for instance, the accuracy of eyewitness testimony and "recovered" memories of childhood sexual abuse).
