Research in our lab focuses primarily on better understanding children’s ability to remember and report experiences and investigating ways in which adults can best assist them in their recall. We study children’s memory for events and people, and explore applied methods that interviewers can use to improve children’s recall. Specific foci include: children’s memory for instances of repeated events, children as alibi witnesses and eyewitnesses, and investigative interviewing of child witnesses.
Our lab also explores basic memory issues as well as other ways in which the legal system and psychology interact. Lab members are interested in basic memory concepts like retrieval-induced forgetting and directed forgetting and more applied issues like eyewitness testimony in adults and judicial decision-making.
