    Experts in research on eyewitness identification often testify to its inaccuracies and the biases that can affect eyewitness recall, such as the process used for line ups, the questioning methods used for the eyewitness, the simple elapse of time, the number of times the eyewitness is asked to recount the story, etc. Gary Wells and Elizabeth Loftus are two of the most prominent experts on eyewitness identification.
