Informational influences on co-witness memory

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Eyewitnesses may incorporate information from a co-witness into their own accounts. In two studies we examined whether the size of co-witness effect varies based upon how good people think their own memory is and how good they think other people’s memories are. In the first study we found the size of the co-witness effect did not vary with people’s beliefs about their memory despite having a large sample. In the second study, the effect was moderated by people’s belief in the accuracy of the other co-witnesses. Implications for eyewitness testimony are discussed.
