The number of errors in eyewitness testimony is very large and can have catastrophic social consequences, when an innocent is convicted. The present study aimed to identify psychophysiological markers of performance in lineup identification based on facial electromyography. Since criminals are emotionally negative and salient for eyewitnesses, a gr...

Errors in eyewitness testimony are frequent and problematic, due to the ethical and social impact of false positives. As an attempt to reduce the number of errors, it has been suggested that identification markers based on methodologies like ERPs should be developed. Twenty-nine participants viewed crime videos, each followed by an interference tas...

The influence of the synchrony effect (congruence between chronotype and time-of-day) on the mnesic and attentional performance is well documented. However, studies that relate the synchrony effect with identification performance on lineups are few and focused on recognition. Thirty-four participants watched eight theft videos, each followed by an...

In this article we discuss a novel approach to Bio-Radar, contactless measurement of bio-signals, called Cognitive Bio-Radar. This new approach implements the Bio-Radar in a Software Defined Radio (SDR) platform in order to obtain awareness of the environment where it operates. Due to this, the Cognitive Bio-Radar can adapt to its surroundings in o...

The Halstead Category Test (HCT) is a neuropsychological test that measures a person’s ability to formulate and apply principles. Performance must be adjusted based on feedback after each trial and errors are common until the underlying rules are discovered. Event-related potential (ERP) studies associated with the HCT are lacking. This paper demon...

Chapter
Experimental psychology can provide significant contributions to many applied areas. Based on specific paradigms and techniques, and using strictly controlled conditions, it is possible to isolate variables and explore their contributions to human behavior and performance. Forensic science is one of the areas where experimental psychology has made...

Previous research established that the externalizing dimension of personality is a high-risk factor for antisocial and violent behaviour, which seems to have a neurobiological substrate. Misinterpretation of social and emotional cues can result in the generation of inappropriate social responses, such as violence. The present study thus aimed to ex...
