Research demonstrates that memory is highly suggestible so many methods have been introduced to reduce the possibility of mistaken identity. 'Psychologists are continuing to refine and develop these areas' said Professor Graham Pike, a member of the Forensic Psychology Research Group based at the Open University. The group has developed a widget called `PhotoFitMe', which lets you put together a virtual face from individual features. Try out the widget for yourself.
No more miscarriages of justice caused by mistaken identity?
