Memory Distortion: How Minds, Brains, and Societies Reconstruct the Past
Harvard University Press, 1995 - 417 pagina's
Hypnosis, confabulation, source amnesia, flashbulb memories, repression - these and numerous additional topics are explored in this timely collection of essays by eminent scholars in a range of disciplines. This is the first book on memory distortion to unite contributions from cognitive psychology, psychopathology, psychiatry, neurobiology, sociology, history, and religious studies. It brings the most relevant group of perspectives to bear on some key contemporary issues, including the value of eyewitness testimony and the accuracy of recovered memories of sexual abuse.
