Reconstruction of automobile destruction was a psychological study carried out by Elizabeth Loftus and John Palmer in 1974.[1] The aim of the study was to investigate whether eyewitness memory can be altered by information supplied to them after an event. Previous studies had established that memories were not necessarily accurate representations of actual events but were actually constructed using past experiences and other manipulations.
