Science on Tap
Start Date: 3/24/2014Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 3/24/2014

Event Description:
Science on Tap is a series of informal chats about scientific topics designed to engage the public and demystify science. The series was created by the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University. The series is hosted by Steven Reiner, former 60 Minutes producer and professor in the Stony Brook School of Journalism.

Speaker: Nancy Franklin, PhD, Professor in the Department of Psychology at Stony Brook University, who specializes in eyewitness memory and identification

Topic: "What do you Remember?" 
Dr. Franklin is fascinated by the slipperiness of our memories. Her primary areas of research concern memory decisions, memory errors, and the influence of emotions like anger, suspense and threat on how we perceive things. She and her graduate students are pursuing some of these topics in the context of eyewitness memory and identification. Dr. Franklin has been invited to consult as an expert in over 300 cases in criminal, family, supreme and superior courts in New York, Massachusetts and Maryland. In several of these cases she has testified regarding eyewitness identification, perception, memory and cognition.

The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are strongly suggested. For information and reservations, email
