Demonstration Of Misinformation

Satisfactory Essays
The demonstration of the misinformation shows that people form false memories and insert misleading details after receiving wrong information after an event, or after repeatedly imagining and rehearsing memories that never occurred. When we reassemble a memory during retrieval, we may attribute it to the wrong source and perform an action referred to as source amnesia. Source amnesia may help explain feelings such as believing something has happened before (déjà vu). Real-seeming memories feel like they are correct memories and are as persistent as real ones, are false, altered memories due to processes such as the aforementioned misinformation, imagination, and source amnesia.
