Apologies to those living outside Scotland, but you are invited to our annual John Damien lecture, this year given by Professor Vicki Bruce on 'Face Fallacies':
In this lecture I will describe popular misconceptions about memory for faces, and the identification of face images in passport or CCTV images, and consider their implications in legal and security settings. I will describe how research by psychologists, much of it conducted in Stirling and other universities in Scotland, has helped  improve the systems used to question witnesses and guide the courts. Nevertheless, miscarriages of justice based upon misidentification remain a cause for concern.
The event will take place on Thursday 01 October 2015 in the Logie Lecture Theatre at the University of Stirling, at 6:30 pm.
The lecture will be accompanied by a workshop on the same day, 1st October -if you are interested in attending please get in touch with me.
