2013 Allen L. Edwards Psychology Lecture Series: Geoffrey Loftus and Elizabeth Loftus
What roles do human perception, attention, and memory play in the courtroom? In Human Memory and the Law, Geoffrey Loftus and Elizabeth Loftus will discuss specific homicide cases in which human cognition played an important part in determining a verdict. They will take a look at psychologists who provide expert testimony in court, and how those opinions impact jurors.
Geoffrey Loftus is a professor in the University of Washington's Department of Psychology. Elizabeth Loftus is a distinguished professor of social ecology and professor of law, and cognitive science at the University of California, Irvine.
The eighth annual Allen L. Edwards Psychology Lecture Series will spotlight "The Science of Psychology in the Real World." This popular series brings notable psychologists to the University of Washington to co-present with faculty from the UW Department of Psychology. Together they will examine the real-world impacts of research in the fields of nature, adolescence, and the legal system. Learn more about the 2013 series.
This free, public series is made possible by a generous bequest from Professor Allen L. Edwards.
