The revised edition of the book "Forensic Examination of Signatures" suggests some of the questions that one might ask of an examiner and provides a piece of knowledge for both experienced document examiners and lawyers. Systematically are presented: 1) Identificational examinations: variants of the signatures of the same person; signatures, modified because of administrative and legal reasons; similar signatures; receipt signatures; identification of initials and illiterates' marks; examination of digitally captured signatures.2) Non-identificational examinations: signatures influenced by alcohol and drugs; assisted or guided signatures; illness signatures; examination of signatures with remoteness in time; old age signatures; signatures affixed with a non-habitual hand; signatures on behalf of nonexistent persons; memorabilia, artwork, and historical documents signatures.3) Manipulations of signatures: imitation, self-forgery; genuine signatures which have been obtained by trickery; copied signatures; mechanical signatures.

What exactly is forensic signature examination? Is the comparison of signatures really a science? How is it done? How can one become trained in this discipline? What are the parameters which guide the expert in reaching an opinion? What effects do health, drugs, or alcohol have on signature skills? Can a signature include obvious differences and still be genuine? At what point do differences become significant? How does an attorney work with an expert in this field? What documents and materials will be needed? How can a document expert explain the details of this work to a jury? How does an attorney effectively cross examine a document expert? FORENSIC SIGNATURE EXAMINATION answers these questions. The reader will learn how the scientific method is applied to signature examination, how to define the parameters which guide decision making, and how forgeries can be recognized. Students will find this to be a sensible approach to the study of signature examination. Document examiners will find a method for explaining their work to clients and to the court. Attorneys will find that they can take the magic out of a signature examination so their own witness is more credible - or an opposing witness held to a more effective cross-examination. For attorneys, document examiners, and students, here is a straightforward, systematic explanation of why we can rely on signatures as a means of identification and how the habits of pen rhythm and character design can be analyzed.

The Daubert trilogy of U.S. Supreme Court cases has established that scientific expert testimony must be based on science grounded in empirical research. As such, greater scrutiny is being placed on questioned document examination generally, and handwriting comparison in particular. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, The Neuroscience of Handwriting: Applications in Forensic Document Examination examines the essential neuroscientific principles underlying normal and pathological hand motor control and handwriting. Topics discussed include: Fundamental principles in the neuroanatomy and neurochemistry of hand motor control and their application to research in handwriting The epidemiology, pathophysiology, and motor characteristics of neurogenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, essential tremor, and motor neuron disease and their effects on handwriting Psychotropic medications prescribed for depression, bipolar disorder, and psychosis; their mechanisms of action; and their effect on motor behavior and handwriting The impact of substance abuse on handwriting An overview of the aging process and its effects on motor control and handwriting The kinematic approach and new findings on the kinematic analyses of genuine, disguised, and forged signatures The authors’ laboratory research on authentic and forged signatures An essential resource for professionals and researchers in the forensic documentation examination and legal communities, this volume provides a window on the scientific process of signature and handwriting authentication, integrating the extensive research on neural processes and exploring how disease, medication, and advanced age alter these processes.

GET BOOK!

The interpretation and evaluation of scientific evidence and its presentation in a court of law is central both to the role of the forensic scientist as an expert witness and to the interests of justice. This book aims to provide a thorough and detailed discussion of the principles and practice of evidence interpretation and evaluation by using real cases by way of illustration. The presentation is appropriate for students of forensic science or related disciplines at advanced undergraduate and master's level or for practitioners engaged in continuing professional development activity. The book is structured in three sections. The first sets the scene by describing and debating the issues around the admissibility and reliability of scientific evidence presented to the court. In the second section, the principles underpinning interpretation and evaluation are explained, including discussion of those formal statistical methods founded on Bayesian inference. The following chapters present perspectives on the evaluation and presentation of evidence in the context of a single type or class of scientific evidence, from DNA to the analysis of documents. For each, the science underpinning the analysis and interpretation of the forensic materials is explained, followed by the presentation of cases which illustrate the variety of approaches that have been taken in providing expert scientific opinion.

A specialist in questioned documents, Morris reviews he basic concepts of what affect people's writing, such as how they hold the pen; position the paper; move their fingers, hand, wrist; and so on. The examiner, he explains, should be able to visual the movements of the writer, evaluate pen direction, and determine the significance of such factors as relative relationships between the various parts of writing and the influence of writing on paper with or without a pre-drawn base.
