Product Overview

Comfabulations are memories of events and experiences that have never actually happened. Such false memories have fascinated scientists for hundreds of years, and recently have been the subject of much debate. This is the first book to provide an in-depth analysis of an extraordinary and controversial subject. The Confabulating Mind: How the Brain Creates Reality looks at how confabulations relate to other failures of memory and considers phenomena such as deja-vu, paramnesic misidentification, disorientation, and anosognosia, also examines similarities and differences between pathological confabulations and normal false memories as they occur in healthy people.
Providing important insights into memory in general, the book will be of interest to neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, and other scientists and clinicians interested in the organization of memory and thought.
