False Memories of UFO Encounters: An fMRI Investigation
TLDR
The results indicated that self-referential responding was mainly associated to prefrontal and limbic activations whereas the successful retrieval of unusual content was associated to multiple regions of the brain including but not limited to bilateral prefrontal and occipitals, and right anterior cingulate.
The Naïve and the Distrustful: State dependency of hippocampal computations in manipulative memory distortion
TLDR
It is proposed that the results lend support to models suggesting that hippocampal activity can exhibit different computational schemes, depending on memorandum attributes, and shown that trust, considered as a subjective state of mind, may alter basic hippocampal strategies, influencing the ability to separate real from false memory.
The Pleasantness of False Beliefs: An Emotion-based Account of Confabulation
This paper reports an empirical reinvestigation of data collected by Karen Kaplan-Solms and Mark Solms. It focuses on neurological patients with medial frontal lesions, who exhibit striking and
Confabulation : constructing motivated memories
Neurological confabulation is a prototypical form of false remembering and as such, it can provide insight into the nature of human memory. The main aims of the thesis was to empirically investigate
Mechanisms of spontaneous confabulations: a strategic retrieval account.
TLDR
Findings support a strategic retrieval account of confabulation of which monitoring is a critical component and whether failure in memory monitoring is crucial for confabulations is tested.
Memory and reality.
TLDR
An approach to studying the nature of mental experiences and the constructive encoding, revival, and evaluative processes involved (the source monitoring framework) is described.
Creating memory illusions: Expectancy-based processing and the generation of false memories
TLDR
The present research attempted to delineate the conditions under which category-based thinking prompts the elicitation of false memories, and revealed that participants' false memories were accompanied by the subjective experience of knowing.

TLDR
A general integrative framework that outlines the types of problems that the human memory system must solve in order to produce mainly accurate representations of past experience is first described.

Memorial consequences of forced confabulation: age differences in susceptibility to false memories.
TLDR
The results showed that children were more prone to this memory error than were adults and forced confabulation was identified as another potent suggestive influence.
The eyewitness suggestibility effect and memory for source
TLDR
The findings indicate that although misled subjects are capable of identifying the source of their memories of misleading suggestions, they nonetheless sometimes misidentify them as memories derived from the original event.
Evaluating characteristics of false memories: Remember/know judgments and memory characteristics questionnaire compared
TLDR
R rates of false recognition for lures were significantly lower than rates of correct recognition when items from various themes were intermixed instead of blocked at acquisition and subjects made MCQ ratings instead of RK judgments.

False memories—either remembering events that never happened, or remembering them quite differently from the way they happened—have recently captured the attention of both psychologists and the

TLDR
It was found that both younger and older adults recalled more sensory and contextual detail in conjunction with studied items than with nonpresented theme words, although these differences were less pronounced in older adults.
