TED talk – Elizabeth Loftus: The fiction of memory

Memory-manipulation expert Elizabeth Loftus explains how our memories might not be what they seem — and how implanted memories can have real-life repercussions.

Elisabeth doesn’t study memory loss, but rather, false memories, and how our memory or recall can be so different to the reality of an event. What the implication of this is on dementia and memory loss (or lack of recall), I have not yet thought about!! Feel free to start the conversation…

  1. Hi Kate, Elizabeth was on ABC Radio National earlier this week, talking about other aspects of memory, more related to law but was still really interesting.

The only thing missing in this global conversation is YOUR voice... Thank you.
