False memories, UFOs and police work

Live Science has an interesting article on the phenomena of false confessions made to police.
Lack of sleep and isolation contribute to false confessions, the scientists say in the new study, announced today. A suspect's mental status and lack of education play roles. [...] A University of Michigan study last year reached the same conclusion in analyzing 328 cases since 1989 in which DNA exoneration defendants convicted of rape, murder and other serious crimes.
The piece has implications for UFO abduction memories. Consider this finding: some "people under interrogation ... become convinced they did it [the crime]."
