Witnesses may discuss what they have seen or heard after having experienced a crime (Skagerberg & Wright, 2008). Subsequently, some witnesses may then report information they have not experienced themselves but only heard about from their co-witness. This is called memory conformity (Gabbert et a., 2003). Co-witness information may have beneficial and harmful effects on memory accuracy depending on whether the information was correct or incorrect.
