9780199920754: Memory and Law (Oxford Series in Neuroscience, Law, and Philosophy)

The legal system depends upon memory function in a number of critical ways, including the memories of victims, the memories of individuals who witness crimes or other critical events, the memories of investigators, lawyers, and judges engaged in the legal process, and the memories of jurors. How well memory works, how accurate it is, how it is affected by various aspects of the criminal justice system -- these are all important questions. But there are others as well: Can we tell when someone is reporting an accurate memory? Can we distinguish a true memory from a false one? Can memories be selectively enhanced, or erased? Are memories altered by emotion, by stress, by drugs? These questions and more are addressed by Memory and Law, which aims to present the current state of knowledge among cognitive and neural scientists about memory as applied to the law.

Review:


"This is a well-reasoned, scholarly offering about the science of memory and its intersection with the law and its use in the courtroom. It provides a unique and thought-provoking look at some of the dogma in our legal process that desperately needs an outside, objective perspective." -- DOODY'S


"... this book is an excellent collection of chapters from experts in the area of memory and law. The chapters are written in a highly accessible way and provide up-todate reviews of the literature that would appeal to a broad audience of readers interested in issues surrounding memory and law. The authors make a point to offer concrete suggestions, where possible, for the application of psychological research to real-world legal contexts, and many authors provide applied examples from legal decisions and court transcripts to support empirical points. Many of the chapters also include suggestions for future research directions that have the potential to help focus the efforts of researchers to address the pressing issues in this field of study." -- PsycCRITIQUES
