I’ve been reading a lot of studies on the suggestibility and memories of children this week; probably because of the San Antonio 4 case. I see so many parelells between the cases; the age of the supposed victims, the possibility of vindictive lovers, the media frenzy surrounding the cases…It’s crazy how much they have in common.

Anyway, I found an interesting piece that gathers several studies together and examines what we knew and what we didn’t know about children’s testimony around that time period. Suggestibility, interview methods, and their effects on memory are all addressed; it's long, but very interesting.
