  1. Saw a documentary about this last year. Our mind works to fill in the gaps where necessary. I find it very interesting. But also interesting is why do we still rely so heavily on eye witness testimony in court? When it can be scientifically proven that our mind can make stuff up?

    • I’ve wondered the same thing. As far as i’m concerned, eye witness testimony is only useful in the absence of any other form of physical evidence. I guess that’s another good reason for having juries – it puts eye witness testimony under more scrutiny than if we had a single judge making decisions. This is also one of the reasons i’m researching dashcams, just in case of an accident or something i’ll have the objective eye of a video camera.
