Déjà vu is the striking sense that the present situation feels familiar, alongside the realization that it has to be new. According to the Gestalt familiarity hypothesis, déjà vu results when the configuration of elements within a scene maps onto a configuration previously seen, but the previous scene fails to come to mind. We examined this using virtual reality (VR) technology. When a new immersive VR scene resembled a previously-viewed scene in its configuration but people failed to recall… Expand
The similarity hypothesis of déjà vu: On the relationship between frequency of real-life déjà vu experiences and sensitivity to configural resemblance
Prior research has suggested that configural resemblance between a current scene and a previously experienced but forgotten one may trigger déjà vu experiences. The present study examined whetherExpand
The Sense of Recognition during Retrieval Failure
TLDR
This chapter describes how research on the sense of recognition during retrieval failure has been used to systematically identify features of experiences that can lead to recognition. Expand
Effects of scripted activities on false feelings of having previously visited a location
  • I. Suzuki
  • Psychology, Medicine

TLDR
It is suggested that activation of script knowledge and misattribution of the source of feelings of familiarity elicit false beliefs of having visited a specific location, even if one understands that one has never previously visited the location. Expand
Chapter Three – The Sense of Recognition during Retrieval Failure: Implications for the Nature of Memory Traces
TLDR
This chapter describes how research on the sense of recognition during retrieval failure has been used to systematically identify features of experiences that can lead to recognition. Expand
The role of analogy in reports of presque vu: Does reporting the presque vu state signal the near retrieval of a source analogy?
Prior research with four-part analogies suggests that people can detect that a novel word pair (e.g., “beaver:dam”) maps analogically onto a pair in memory (e.g., “robin:nest”) despite being unableExpand
Hippocampal contribution to implicit configuration memory expressed via eye movements during scene exploration
TLDR
It is suggested that visual exploration can reflect implicit hippocampal‐related memory processing that can be observed in eye‐movement behavior during naturalistic scene viewing, and that EO was an implicit expression of scene configuration memory associated with hippocampal activity. Expand
fMRI evidence supporting the role of memory conflict in the déjà vu experience
TLDR
The increased likelihood of déjà vu reports to DRM critical lures correctly identified as "new", and the activation of neural substrates supporting the experience of cognitive conflict during déjès vu, suggest that the resolution of memory conflict may play an integral role in déjé vu. Expand
Music recognition without identification and its relation to déjà entendu: A study using “Piano Puzzlers”
Abstract The feeling of familiarity--the sensation of recognizing a situation without identifying any relevant prior experience—is one of the many ways in which people can experience a sensation ofExpand
Distinct Familiarity-Based Response Patterns for Faces and Buildings in Perirhinal and Parahippocampal Cortex
TLDR
The findings show that both PrC and PhC contribute to the assessment of item familiarity and suggest that PhC does not only represent episodic context but can also represent item information for some object categories in recognition-memory decisions. Expand
Recall versus familiarity when recall fails for words and scenes: The differential roles of the hippocampus, perirhinal cortex, and category-specific cortical regions
TLDR
This fMRI study examined recall and familiarity for words and scenes using the novel recognition without cued recall (RWCR) paradigm, finding that, among cues for which recall fails, subjects generally rate cues that resemble studied items as more familiar than cues that do not. Expand

Can déjà vu result from similarity to a prior experience? Support for the similarity hypothesis of déjà vu
TLDR
This work used a variation of the recognition-without-recall method of studying familiarity to examine instances in which participants failed to recall a studied scene in response to a configurally similar novel test scene and found that resemblance to a previously viewed scene increased both feelings of familiarity and of déjà vu. Expand
Creating Illusions of Past Encounter Through Brief Exposure
TLDR
A brief glance at an identical symbol increased attributions to preexperimental experience, relative to a glance at a different symbol or no symbol, providing a possible mechanism for common illusions of false recognition. Expand
Digging into Déjà Vu
Abstract The deja vu experience has piqued the interest of philosophers and physicians for over 150 years, and has recently begun to connect to research on fundamental cognitive mechanisms. FollowingExpand
Recognition without picture identification: Geons as components of the pictorial memory trace
TLDR
A picture fragment identification task in which half of the fragments corresponding to studied pictures and half corresponded to unstudied pictures was presented and participants gave a rating to indicate the likelihood that the fragment came from a studied picture. Expand
Recognition Memory, Familiarity, and Déjà vu Experiences
Déjà vu occurs when one feels as though a situation is familiar, despite evidence that the situation could not have been experienced before. Until recently, the topic of déjà vu remained largelyExpand
Familiarity Breeds Attempts: A Critical Review of Dual-Process Theories of Recognition
  • G. Mandler
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Perspectives on psychological science : a journal of the Association for Psychological Science

TLDR
The history of this approach to dual-process recognition and the two processes of familiarity and recollection are discussed and their origin in pattern matching and organization is located. Expand
Recognition memory for novel stimuli: the structural regularity hypothesis.
TLDR
The highly generalizable tendency shown here is for structural regularity to benefit old-new discrimination and the increase in false-positive responses for structurally regular novel items may be limited to situations in which regularity is confounded with similarity to studied items. Expand
Feature and conjunction effects in recognition memory: Toward specifying familiarity for compound words
TLDR
The results support a familiarity-based interpretation of feature and conjunction errors and a lexical morpheme basis for the familiarity in compound words and in order to be more comprehensive, memory models may need to account for a Lexical morpheus source of familiarity. Expand
Orthography, phonology, and meaning: Word features that give rise to feelings of familiarity in recognition
  • A. Cleary
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Psychonomic bulletin & review
  • 2004
TLDR
It was shown that participants can recognize test cues as resembling studied words even when these cues cannot be used to recall the words that they resemble, when orthographic, phonemic, and semantic cued recall tasks were used. Expand
