Scott Fraser estuda a forma como os humanos se lembram dos crimes — e como os testemunham. Nesta impressionante palestra, que se foca num tiroteio mortal ao pôr-do-sol, sugere que mesmo as testemunhas oculares mais próximas do crime podem criar "memórias" do que não poderiam ter visto. Porquê? Porque o cérebro odeia o vácuo.
