False Memory
False Memory
False Memory Memory is the mental faculty of retaining and recalling past experiences. A repressed memory is one that is retained in the sub conscious mind, where one is not aware of it but where it can still affect both conscious thoughts and behavior. When memory is distorted or confabulated, the result can be what has been called the False Memory Syndrome: a condition in which a person's identity and interpersonal relationships are entered around a memory of traumatic experience which is obje

A vital component of this reality exists in a form that is neither provable, nor ideal. This supposedly perfect form of measurement, known as time, runs our lives until we fall so far behind that our bodies finally give out and die. T

Thus it means feeling pressed down, sad or low. In the late Middle Ages, religious leaders believed depression was caused by posession of evil spirits.

People often misremember, or forget completely. What can be deduced about the processes of memory on the basis of everyday memory failures? It would be difficult to think of a cognitive process which could be carried out without a memory system. However, people often complain that they often do forget the things which they would like to remember. Therefore an understanding of the way memory works is especially important when looking at why people misremember and forget. Because of this, much res
