Birmingham ThinkTank Museum Exhibiton 'Are You A Good Eyewitness (28th May - 1st June 2018)

In May-June 2018, students and staff from the Applied Memory Lab ran an interactive exhibit at the Birmingham ThinkTank Museum as part of the “Meet the Expert” programme.


Three teams of Psychology students developed and delivered demonstrations on eyewitness memory for children and adults. The exhibit unveiled to the public, for the very first time, a 3D interactive line-up identification procedure developed by the lab.
 

The exhibit was made possible by grants from the Alumni Impact Fund and the Centre for Crime Justice and Policing. The exhibit was led by Dr Melissa Colloff, Ms Danielle Hett and Dr Heather Flowe.
