The Construction of Memory 1: Alasdair Hopwood & Fiona Gabbert
Summary: Alasdair Hopwood: Introductory RemarksFiona Gabbert: The Psychology of False MemoryIs it possible to develop a 'memory' for something that was not experienced? Plenty of evidence now exists to suggest that it is possible ...but how does this happen, and can we distinguish false memories from our 'real' memories? This seminar provides an overview of how psychologists investigate the phenomenon of false memories, and what the findings can tell us about how our memories work. The implications of this body of research will also be discussed with reference to real life examples.These recordings may not be further used or cited without the express permission of the speakers.
