Ford Gives Scientific Response for '100 Percent' Certainty

(C-SPAN)

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, as a psychologist and professor, shared a scientific explanation for her level of certainty that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had been the person who held her down and attempted to remove her clothing during a high school party 36 years ago.

"The same way that I'm sure I'm talking to you right now," Ford told Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., when she asked her how she could be "so sure it was Kavanaugh and not someone else who had allegedly attacked her," reports Fox News.

"Basic memory functions, and, also just the level of norepinephrine and epinephrine in the brain, that sort of, as you know, encodes that neurotransmitter – encodes memories into the hippocampus, so the trauma-related experience is kind of locked there, whereas other details kind of drift," the doctor explained.

"What you're telling us is this could not be a case of mistaken identity?" Feinstein said.

"Absolutely not," Ford said, adding she is "100 percent" certain it was Kavanaugh.

Republicans on the committee said Monday they had conducted interviews with two men who claimed they, and not Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Ford in 1982.
