The influence of task difficulty on the effect of co-witness information in eyewitness identification

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



Abstract:

We investigated whether a co-witness can influence a witness’s lineup choice. Witnesses watched a crime with good or poor viewing conditions, and then learned whether a co-witness chose someone from or rejected the lineup (or learned no co-witness information). We hypothesized that witnesses would be more likely to conform to co-witness information if they viewed the crime under poor viewing conditions versus good viewing conditions, and that conformity would be more likely in conditions in which the co-witness chose from (rather than rejected) the lineup. Results and implications will be discussed.
