Dr. Blandon-Gitlin conducts empirical research on issues at the intersection of psychology and law. Currently she has projects investigating (a) conditions under which memories for non-experienced events (i.e., false memories) are more likely to develop, (b) aspects of children's suggestibility, (c) validity of verbal lie detection methods, (d) the role cognitive load (mental load) plays in liars' verbal and non-verbal behaviors, (e) jurors' perceptions of police interrogation tactics and their evaluation of confession evidence elicited from those tactics.
