Jurors’ Reliance on Peripheral versus Central Processing of Expert Testimony During Deliberation

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



Abstract:

Coding of mock jury deliberations revealed more evidence of central than peripheral processing of expert witnesses. Further, lower NFC jurors’ (who are less inclined to process information centrally) reliance on peripheral processing can be decreased by a central (versus purely peripheral) cross-examination that highlights flaws in the expert’s message. The central cross-examination did not, however, decrease the relationship between NFC and the number of comments about both experts made during deliberation. This study assessed central and peripheral processing at the group level and might explain prior research that finds heuristics sometimes matter less after deliberation.
