The following paper explores the misinformation effect and its consequences for
eyewitness testimonies. It examines various studies that have been done that
demonstrate what happens when individuals are supplied with supplemental
information following an event they witnessed. Additionally, studies that address
ways to limit the misinformation effect are discussed and future research is
proposed to help foster more accurate eyewitness testimony.
