The Eyewitness Memory Lab has a stimulus database of 218 participants that can be used for research purposes.
For each participant, four versions of stimuli were recorded that varied in length, distance, and whether the person was wearing a disguise in the form of sunglasses or not. In addition, static lineup images (front ,left, and right) and dynamic video lineup images were collected.
- PROCESS OF CREATING THE DATABASE
The participants permitted their images to be shared with other researchers and retained for any further research approved by a Research Ethics Committee or an Institutional Review Board.
The images were recorded at the University of Portsmouth with support from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
The lineup images were recorded using a booth on loan from the Video Identification Parade Electronic Recording (VIPER) Bureau, West Yorkshire Police, England. These images have not been quality assured by the VIPER Bureau, and the authors accept full responsibility for their quality. The people depicted are actors, not actual culprits or lineup members in real criminal cases. All actors consented to the publication of their photographs in academic journal articles.
