Real-life memory distortions, especially as they apply to legal settings
Maryanne is interested in experiences that never happened, 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. She has 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).
