Déjà vu is characterized by the recognition of a situation concurrent with the awareness that this recognition is inappropriate. Although forms of déjà vu resolve in favor of the inappropriate recognition and therefore have behavioral consequences, typical déjà vu experiences resolve in favor of the awareness that the sensation of recognition is inappropriate. The resultant lack of behavioral modification associated with typical déjà vu means that clinicians and experimenters rely heavily on… Expand
Déjà vu in unilateral temporal-lobe epilepsy is associated with selective familiarity impairments on experimental tasks of recognition memory
TLDR
The current findings establish a first empirical link between déjà vu in TLE and processes of familiarity assessment, as defined and measured in current cognitive models and reveal a pattern of selectivity in recognition impairments that is rarely observed and, thus, of significant theoretical interest to the memory literature at large. Expand
Disordered recognition memory: Recollective confabulation
TLDR
A new case series of 11 people with dementia or mild cognitive impairment and with déjà vu-like experiences is presented and the nature of the recognition memory deficit is explored, and it is proposed that RC arises from a metacognitive error; an attempt to justify inappropriate feelings of familiarity which leads to false recognition. Expand
Déjà vu experiences in healthy subjects are unrelated to laboratory tests of recollection and familiarity for word stimuli
TLDR
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. 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
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
Many Faces of Déjà Vu: a Narrative Review.
TLDR
It seems that temporal region is the origin of déjà vu phenomena in both healthy individuals and in individuals with neurological and psychiatric conditions, but the exact mechanism of this phenomenon is however still unknown. Expand
The awareness of novelty for strangely familiar words: a laboratory analogue of the déjà vu experience
TLDR
It is proposed that verifiable novelty is an important component of both naturalistic and experimental analogues of déjà vu, and aspects of the naturalistic déjaa vu experience were captured by this analogue, but that the analogue was also limited in its focus and prone to influence by demand characteristics. Expand
Pathologies of hyperfamiliarity in dreams, delusions and déjà vu
The ability to challenge and revise thoughts prompted by anomalous experiences depends on activity in right dorsolateral prefrontal circuitry. When activity in those circuits is absent or compromisedExpand
Déjà vu and the feeling of prediction: an association with familiarity strength
TLDR
Though the present study was mainly descriptive in characterising the interrelations between déjà vu, feelings of prediction, and familiarity, the full pattern points toward the possibility that high familiarity intensity may contribute to the feeling of prediction during déjaa vu. Expand
Déjà vu and prescience in a case of severe episodic amnesia following bilateral hippocampal lesions
TLDR
This study shows that déjà vu can occur in cases of amnesia with massively damaged hippocampi and confirms that the perirhinal region is a core region for déjé vu, using a different approach from previous reports. Expand

A review of the déjà vu experience.
TLDR
Systematic research is needed on the prevalence and etiology of this culturally familiar cognitive experience, and several laboratory models may help clarify this illusion of recognition. 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
Disordered memory awareness: recollective confabulation in two cases of persistent déjà vecu
We describe two cases of false recognition in patients with dementia and diffuse temporal lobe pathology who report their memory difficulty as being one of persistent déjà vecu--the sensation thatExpand
Déjà Vu Experiences Are Rarely Associated With Pathological Dissociation
TLDR
It is suggested that déjà vu experiences are unlikely to be core pathological dissociative experiences and best correlated with a model that included age, jamais vu, depersonalization, and precognitive dreams. 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
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
Normal patterns of déjà experience in a healthy, blind male: Challenging optical pathway delay theory
TLDR
The case of a 25-year-old healthy, blind male, MT, who experiences normal patterns of déjà vu, believed to be the first reported application of this knowledge to the understanding of the phenomenon. Expand
Déjà Vu in the Laboratory: A Behavioral and Experiential Comparison of Posthypnotic Amnesia and Posthypnotic Familiarity
TLDR
The findings of this experiment highlight the value of using hypnosis as a laboratory analogue of déjà vu and provide a framework for investigating clinical manifestations of this phenomenon. Expand
Déjà vu experiences in schizophrenia: relations with psychopathology and antipsychotic medication.
TLDR
The decreased frequency of déjà vu experiences in patients with schizophrenia may be mainly due to the negative symptoms, and the positive relation between frequency and dosage of neuroleptics remains uncertain. Expand
Intense and recurrent déjà vu experiences related to amantadine and phenylpropanolamine in a healthy male
TLDR
It is suggested that déjà vu experiences may be provoked by increased dopamine activity in mesial temporal structures of the brain, which are related to paramnesic symptoms. Expand
