Eyewitness Identification

Eyewitness identification is one of the leading causes of wrongful convictions in the U.S.

This is caused by confident, yet inaccurate, eyewitnesses. Eyewitness identification is one of the most persuasive forms of evidence, which is why juries sometimes believe inaccurate eyewitnesses and find this testimony so overwhelmingly compelling.

Dr. Neuschatz has conducted research on showup identifications, eyewitness confidence, and post-identification feedback. Additionally, he has written extensively on the different social and cognitive factors that influence both eyewitness identification and memory.
