We investigated the relation between déjà vu and dissociative experiences in nonclinical subjects. In 227 adult volunteers, déjà vu and dissociative experiences were evaluated by means of the inventory of déjà vu experiences assessment and dissociative experiences scale (DES). Déjà vu experiences occurred in 162 (71.4%) individuals. In univariate correlation analysis, the frequency of déjà vu experiences, as well as 5 other inventory of déjà vu experiences assessment symptoms and age at the… 

Déjà vu experiences in anxiety

Dissociative experiences in epilepsy: Effects of epilepsy-related factors on pathological dissociation

Two forms of déjà vu experiences in patients with epilepsy

Is there anything distinctive about epileptic déjà vu?

Background Déjà vu can occur as an aura of temporal lobe epilepsy and in some psychiatric conditions but is also common in the general population. It is unclear whether any clinical features

Dissociativeexperiencesinepilepsy:Effectsofepilepsy-relatedfactorson pathological dissociation

A controlled study with 225 patients with epilepsy and 334 nonclinically matched individuals found no significant difference in the DES score (DES-S), which indicates that epilepsy-related factors were associated with pathological dissociation.

Déjà vu experiences in healthy subjects are unrelated to laboratory tests of recollection and familiarity for word stimuli

It is suggested that déjà vu in the healthy population reflects a mismatch between errant memory signaling and memory monitoring processes not easily characterized by standard recognition memory task performance.

The the the the induction of jamais vu in the laboratory: word alienation and semantic satiation

Jamais vu is a phenomenon operationalised as the opposite of déjà vu, i.e. finding subjectively unfamiliar something that the authors know to be familiar that is related to real-world experiences of unfamiliarity.

Dissociation and Pain-Catastrophizing: Absorptive Detachment as a Higher-Order Factor in Control of Pain-Related Fearful Anticipations Prior to Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA)

This study tests the hypotheses of an overlap and hierarchical organization of the two constructs, PC and dissociation, respectively, using the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index, the Childhood Trauma Screener, and an exploratory factor analysis comprising the PCS and the FDS-20 in aggregate.
