Journal Article
Harvey, A. C., Vrij, A., Leal, S., Deeb, H., Hope, L., & Mann, S. (2020). Amplifying recall after delays via initial interviewing: Inoculating truth-tellers' memory as a function of encoding quality. Acta Psychologica, 209, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.actpsy.2020.103130

Typically, truth-tellers report more detailed statements when interviewed immediately, compared to after delays (displaying forgetting), whereas liars report statements containing similar amounts of detail when interviewed immediately or after a dela...

Lie-detection by strategy manipulation: Developing an Asymmetric Information Management (AIM) technique (2020)
Journal Article
Porter, C. N., Morrison, E., Fitzgerald, R. J., Taylor, R., & Harvey, A. C. (2020). Lie-detection by strategy manipulation: Developing an Asymmetric Information Management (AIM) technique. Journal of Applied Research in Memory and Cognition, 9(2), 232-241. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jarmac.2020.01.004

Liars can, when prompted, provide detailed statements. Ideally, interview protocols to improve lie-detection should (a) encourage forthcoming verbal strategies from truth tellers and (b) encourage withholding verbal strategies from liars. Previous re...
