When can you trust your memory? 

Psychologist Scott Gronlund applies basic memory research to real-world problems, especially those involving eyewitness identification. He studies how certain procedures (showups vs. lineups, simultaneous lineups vs. sequential lineups) affect the likelihood of mistakenly identifying an innocent person and correctly identifying a guilty person. Recent research on the initial confidence report of an eyewitness indicates that the criminal justice system should place more trust into an eyewitness' memory than has been previously thought.
