That's hard to say. We DO know that Bryan talked to investigators BEFORE his surgery, and we know that they DID "correct" some things he said, during that interview, and in the one the next day. For example: BRYAN never said that the assailant said he had broken out of "Deer Lodge" prison in Montana. INVESTIGATORS told BRYAN "he must have said Deer Lodge." So, we KNOW they definitely "corrected" his memory on at least one IMPORTANT detail.
There is no extant transcript or report about the interview with police before Bryan's surgery. So, we don't know just how many times they "prompted" his memory. The interview with Robertson the next day exists in two forms--the raw "transcript," and the finished report. Those two version have several differences. Soooooooo...
Just to get an idea, I voluntold a few people to participate in a very quick experiment to look at how the posture of writing on a car door might affect a person's normal handwriting. Most had no idea what I was doing but one or two got suspicious by the not-so-random words they were to write. I'd say mixed results, but you be the judge.
Step 1) Write words to an index card normally on a flat surface.
Step 2) Write same words on poster board taped to the bottom of a door (they needed to squat down to mimic a car door on a very small car).
