ANTECEDENTS OF WRONGFUL CONVICTION: EYEWITNESS IDENTIFICATION

In examining eyewitness identification, most of our research has focused on the social context of the identification, exploring how co-witnesses may affect one another's lineup choices.  In this work, we have shown that learning of another witness's decision to choose from a lineup affects a witness's propensity to choose from the lineup. We are currently conducting research to examine possible moderators of this effect.
