Abstract

A major challenge for investigators is the constant potential for deception. The present article is a step toward developing a system of interviewing and assessment which facilitates the discrimination of honest from deceptive statements. Specifically, this article addresses memory-related detail characteristics (vividness and spontaneity) as indices of statement credibility, and provides information regarding appropriate experimental design for future studies in credibility assessment.
