Wrongful Prosecutions Due to False Remembrance Several individuals have been wrongly prosecuted due to false eyewitness memories due to factors such as the how the human brain remembers things, emotions and the new scientific evidence on eyewitness memory. The new advances in science on how the human brain stores memories and retrieves memories change how eyewitness testimonies are handled. There are two types of trace memories. The first type is called a verbatim memory and that memory consists of exact memories or very close to the original memories. Gist memories are a less specific trace memory.
Moreover, “a behavioural syndrome results showing not only semantic-memory impairment but also particular difficulty remembering past events as personal happenings” (Tulving, 1989). Lastly, in Endel Tulving’s conclusion to his article he states “traditionally held views about the unity of memory are no longer tenable. A more appropriate view seems to be that of multiple memory systems. Remembering one’s past is a different, perhaps more advanced, achievement of the brain than simply knowing about it” (Tulving,
So that his clients side of the story is presented with full detail to portrait truth for his statement towards the court. According to Cohen (2014) attorneys try to get the get the best sentencing outcomes for their clients. In other words, depending on the degree of the crime and what the defendant is being charged with, the attorney job is to provide a clear statement explaining why his client may be innocent or to an extent why something could have happened that wasn 't controllable. Main Defense One of the possible defenses that an attorney can chose is an affirmative defense, this just means that evidence is going to be presented to support locational clarity. This defense is the most common
Although Phenomenological Tradition has richly described the characteristics of embodiment, systematic methodologies are still needed to assist in breaking down concepts of the bodily self (Longo, 2008). Neuropsychological studies have described embodiment using concepts of dissociations between the different constituents of body representations (Longo, 2008). For instance, using brain damaged patients with Anosognosia for hemiplegia, Foutopoulou (2008) determined that forward motor planning is dominant over sensory feedback in awareness of actions. It is difficult to study body ownership experimentally as there is no way of producing a condition where the body is absent. Body Ownership can also be confounded by other mental processes, like the Sense of Agency (having control over actions), which cannot be experimentally isolated from the sense of
Leding (2012) discusses how there are three theories of false memory in the journal article “False memories and persuasion strategies”. These notions of false memory include the source monitoring framework theory, the activation monitoring theory and the fuzzy trace theory. The source monitoring theory is where a specific experience is recollected incorrectly and found to be the foundation of a memory. This fault happens when normal perceptual and reflective processes are interrupted. Leding (2012) also explains how the source-monitoring framework suggests that when people are presented with information to be remembered, the source of that information is not usually tagged in memory.
Arizona ruling eliminated the fear of the accused from torture and coercion and notified individuals of their rights that they otherwise wouldn’t have known that they had. The ruling explicitly stated that if a person was not informed of their Fifth Amendment right, then compelling pressures could cause a person who otherwise not have spoken, to incriminate themselves (Document J). In the Fifth and Sixth Amendments, it had not specifically stated that a suspect must be informed of their rights before they are questioned. The ruling of Miranda v. Arizona finally cleared up the confusion concerning the rights of the accused and self-incrimination and required officials of the law to read out the warning known as the Miranda warning to anyone they may question. Additionally, manuals such as Fundamentals of Criminal Investigation, specified the rules to be used during interrogations to prevent coercion (Document F).
Moreover, the ability to make objective judgments could be enhanced, for instance by questioning witnesses (Joyce, 2013). In conclusion, the judge should be able to overturn acquittal when jury nullifies, in order to ensure that the innocent is not convicted and the guilty is not acquitted (Hostettler,
If the vignette resulted with the protagonist succumbing to perform a negative valence, subjects would agree they demonstrated weakness of will. These results indicate that focusing on either resolution-violations or judgement-violations (or both) strictly is not right and that there are other variables that come into play when deciding whether weakness of will is present. After reviewing different definitions for weakness of will, May and Holton (2012) doubt that weakness of will has an actual definition. Therefore, May and Holton (2012) came to the conclusion that it is a cluster concept, meaning that there are more features to weakness of will than just the judgement-violation and the resolution-violation,
