A Biopsychosocial Theory of Eyewitness Memory: Understanding and Explaining Memory Patterns in Victims of Crime

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



Abstract:

In an attempt to explain the memory variability observed in eyewitness research, the proposed presentation will introduce a newly developed biospsychosocial model of eyewitness memory (Hervé, Cooper & Yuille, 2007), a theory based on advancements in the areas of affect, memory, and trauma. It will be argued that one’s memory for a criminal/traumatic experience is influenced by the interaction of predisposing (e.g., personality), precipitating (e.g., nature of event) and perpetuating (e.g., recall history) factors. Research and practical implications will be discussed, with attention to victims of violent crime and the weapon focus effect (Cooper, Kennedy, Hervé, & Yuille, 2002).
