The aim of this research study is to learn more about the relationship between language and memory. The main objective is to analyze how lexical and syntactic choices in questions during an interrogation may affect the way participants recall events that they have witnessed.

If you agree to participate in this study, you will be asked to conduct an online survey which you will have access to via a link on your computer, laptop, tablet, smart phone, etc. There are three sections: the first section will include a demographic survey. In section 2, you will be presented with a short video, and you will have to give a written account of the events that occur. In section three, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire about the video. Although durations may vary, the entire survey is expected to take 5-10 minutes.

English native speakers or Spanish native speakers are welcome to take it.
