UNSW research into alcohol, race and eyewitness identification accuracy

Mon Feb 22 2010

Recent research by the School of Psychology at the University of NSW has found that, after consuming alcohol, experimental study subjects lost the ability to better recognise faces from their own race. The findings are reported in a paper� "Now Everyone Looks the Same: Alcohol Intoxication Reduces the Own-Race Bias in Face Recognition", in the journal _Law and Human Behaviour. _A printout of the article is held in the Bar Library.
