Patricia and Clifford Lunneborg Professor of Psychology
Division of Philosophy, Religion, Psychology, and Linguistics
Daniel Reisberg, the Patricia and Clifford Lunneborg Professor of Psychology, has been at Reed since 1986. Reisberg’s professional work focuses on the role of perception and memory in the justice system. He has written extensively about the reliability of eyewitness memory, and also works with the courts to evaluate and improve this type of memory. Reisberg consults extensively on specific legal cases, and draws on these cases to enrich his teaching. For example, his “Psychology and the Courts” seminar features guest appearances by lawyers, judges, and police investigators. Reisberg is author or editor of more than 20 books, including textbooks (published by W.W. Norton) aimed at undergraduates and a recent volume (by Oxford University Press) intended for attorneys.
