Déjà Experiences in Temporal Lobe Epilepsy
TLDR
A decoupled familiarity hypothesis is proposed, whereby déjà vu is produced by an erroneous feeling of familiarity which is not in keeping with current cognitive processing, and a parahippocampal dysfunction as the locus of déjaa vu experiences is converged on. Expand
SenseCam as a rehabilitation tool in a child with anterograde amnesia
TLDR
The results suggest that the use of SenseCam in memory rehabilitation extends beyond supporting episodic memory and recollection, and supports the feasibility of its use with children who have marked memory difficulties. Expand
Accelerated long-term forgetting (ALF) and transient epileptic amnesia (TEA): Two cases of epilepsy‐related memory disorder
TLDR
This detailed case work develops the understanding of ALF measurement and demonstrates that ALF and TEA can be dissociated. Expand
The persistence of erroneous familiarity in an epileptic male: Challenging perceptual theories of déjà vu activation
TLDR
Déjà vu is likely to be the result of a cognitive feeling borne of the erroneous activation of neural familiarity circuits such as the parahippocampal gyrus, persisting as long as this activation persists. Expand
Novel insights into false recollection: A model of déjà vécu
TLDR
It is suggested that a region downstream of the hippocampus signals “recollection” by detecting the timing of firing in hippocampal output neurons relative to the theta oscillation, and thatruptions to this “temporal coding” mechanism result in false signals of recollection which may occur without actual retrieval and which, ironically, may arise particularly during situations of contextual novelty. Expand
Recognition Without Identification, Erroneous Familiarity, and Déjà Vu
TLDR
The need for more experimentation and a more cautious interpretation of research findings is suggested, particularly as many techniques being used to explore déjà vu are in the early stages of development. Expand
Autobiographical memory and the self in a case of transient epileptic amnesia
TLDR
The results support recent work suggesting the self may be maintained in the absence of episodic memory, and application of tasks such as that used here will further elucidate AM impairment in temporal lobe epilepsy. Expand
Third International Congress on Epilepsy, Brain and Mind: Part 1
TLDR
Epilepsy in history and the arts and its relationships with religion were discussed, as were overviews of epilepsy and relevant aspects of social cognition, handedness, accelerated forgetting and autobiographical amnesia, and large-scale brain networks. Expand
Persistent psychogenic déjà vu: a case report
TLDR
A 23-year-old White British man with anxiety and depersonalisation who reported experiencing persistent and debilitating déjà vu is suggested to be psychogenic and his memory performance was more conservative than controls but did not indicate a memory deficit. Expand
Effort Test Performance in Clinical Acute Brain Injury, Community Brain Injury, and Epilepsy Populations
TLDR
The WMT was able to identify failures associated with significant cognitive impairment through the application of profile analysis and/or lowered cutoff levels, and a significant minority of patients failed effort tests according to standard cutoff scores, particularly patients with severe traumatic brain injury and marked frontal-executive features.
