FMSF News Alert - August 19, 2013

FMSF readers may be interested in a recent article about Elizabeth Loftus in Scientific American called: "Evidence-based Justice Acknowledges Our Corrupt Memories." (August 14, 2013) Available at: www.ScientificAmerican.com

FMSF Advisory Board Member Elizabeth Loftus has been in the forefront of efforts to understand the malleability of memory and in efforts to educate the judicial system about memory. This article describes how she became interested in memory research and later claims of repressed memory. It highlights some of the interesting cases in which she has testified and some of the obstacles she has faced. Highly Recommended.
