Regarding the use of hypnosis to assist memory, what is the main problem observed in the recall of information in studies so far? a. There is so much information recalled that it is difficult to handle. b. Most people recall things under hypnosis as if they were someone else, which challenges the chain of evidence. c. Hypnosis increases the amount of errors in memory. d. Hypnosis is never useful in jogging the memories of crime victims.
Here are news reports about two studies: http://www.nytimes.com/1997/09/10/us/hypnosis-may-cause-false-memories.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1338671/Hypnosis-does-not-help-accurate-memory-recall-says-study.html
None of the answers are that great, but I'd opt for "c". People are likely to be confident in the accuracy of their memories even if they are not accurate.
