Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Beatles and he did that Album Abbey Road and at very and the song song goes and in the end. The law of you take is equal to the love. You make this thing. Is that true this episode? I go down to Irvine California to the University of California Irvine and speak to professor. Elizabeth Loftus Bath. Loftus is one of the top memory experts in the United States today. She's written books about this subject and has appeared in court many times to address the idea of witness memory reliability. She's worked on many famous cases including the mcmartin preschool case in which the operators of a preschool were accused of all sorts of horrible crimes but there was some question about the reliability of the testimony of the kids in that case because it turns out. It's possible to implant a memory either on purpose or by accident and to somebody's mind and this of course doesn't just apply to children but anybody can have a memory implanted in their heads. Something that patently did not happen. Most of us are pretty confident of what they think they remember but it turns out. Memory is a pretty malleable thing. It can actually change overtime and the long ensured of it is. You shouldn't be too all fired confident in your own memory. Professor Loftus Uis research bears this out and as well worth keeping in mind the next time you feel absolutely positive about something you remember or thank you remember. So here's my conversation.
