We are excited to have Dr. Anne Cybenko lead tomorrow’s QUEST discussion in a continuation of last week’s meeting. Please see below for a short summary of the material, or head over to our blog for a copy of the slides.

Eyewitness memory talk
Eyewitness memory has been a hot research topic among psychologists for the past 30 years. Results of eyewitness memory studies have been presented as evidence in countless courts around the country and have made a difference in many people’s lives. It is a unique, very applied subject that combines aspects of memory and decision-making research, social psychology, and the legal system. Phenomenon that have been discovered in this field that can provide us insight into basic human
cognitive processes. I will present some of these studies that I think lend themselves well to our discussions.
