Psychology lecture on eye-witness testimony

The Poetry psychology students welcomed Dr Gareth Norris from Aberystwyth University this week for a very interesting and informative lecture about eye-witness testimony. He introduced the students to some practical activities which demonstrated the weaknesses of our memory and discussed real-life examples of miscarriages of justice that have been based on eye-witness testimony. We look forward to Dr Norris visiting us again in the future to discuss forensic psychology and criminology.
