False Facial Recognition of Altered Internal & External Features Introduction

  • Published 2005

Abstract

Memories are not as concrete and accurate as we believe them to be. As we continue to experience new events, we are at the mercy of our memory’s malleability and the power of suggestion when we attempt to recall such new memories. By virtue of exposure to misleading misinformation, not only can inaccurate details of a previously experienced event be induced, but an entirely false memory can also be implanted into the minds of unsuspecting participants (Loftus & Hoffman, 1989). Similarly, the reconstructive nature of memory can be found in the area of facial recognition.
