Research Project

Juror Information Processing

The primary purpose of this project is to examine how various factors affect jury decision-making in civil cases, with a special focus on the interaction between attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and information processing. The results will be applicable to our legal system as they help gain insight into how decisions are made in court.
