The Inventory Déjà Vu Experiences Assessment (IDEA) is the only screening instrument proposed to evaluate the Déjà vu (DV) experience. Here, we intended to validate the Italian version of IDEA (I-IDEA) and at the same time to investigate the incidence and subjective qualities of the DV phenomenon in healthy Italian adult individuals on basis of an Italian multicentre observational study. In this study, we report normative data on the I-IDEA, collected on a sample of 542 Italian healthy subjects… Expand

Functional activity changes in memory and emotional systems of healthy subjects with déjà vu
This study demonstrates that individuals who experienced DV are not characterized by different performance underlying familiarity/recollection memory processes, and fMRI results provide evidence that the physiological DV experience is associated with the employment of different neural responses of brain regions involved in memory and emotional processes.

Insight into epileptic and physiological déjà vu: from a multicentric cohort study
The aim was to identify the epidemiological distribution of DV in Italy, and secondly to look for specific features of DV able to discriminate between epileptic and non‐epileptic DV. Expand
Déjà vu and prescience in a case of severe episodic amnesia following bilateral hippocampal lesions
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


Demographic and Psychological Features of Déjà Vu Experiences in a Nonclinical Japanese Population
Results suggest that déjà vu experiences are associated with good memory function and associated with depersonalization, derealization, jamais vu, and daydreams. Expand
Neuro-anatomical differences among epileptic and non-epileptic déjà-vu
VBM results demonstrated different morphologic patterns in individuals with epilepsy and control subjects experiencing DV, involving the memory circuit in bMTLE patients and cerebral regions in the emotional network in healthy controls. Expand
The Inventory for Deja Vu Experiences Assessment: Development, Utility, Reliability, and Validity
The IDEA is a 23-item self-administered questionnaire consisting of a general section of nine questions and a qualitative section of 14 questions that permits the study of quantitative and qualitative characteristics of deja vu experiences. Expand
Cross-cultural adaptation of health-related quality of life measures: literature review and proposed guidelines.
These guidelines include recommendations for obtaining semantic, idiomatic, experiential and conceptual equivalence in translation by using back-translation techniques and committee review, pre-testing techniques and re-examining the weight of scores. Expand
Déjà Experiences in Temporal Lobe Epilepsy
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
History repeating itself: Arnaud's case of pathological déjà vu
It is concluded that Louis's distorted memory is not best described as déjà vu, but rather as a form of reduplicative paramnesia described as recollective confabulation. Expand
Unveiling the mystery of déjà vu: The structural anatomy of déjà vu
A structural correlate of DV in healthy individuals for the first time is demonstrated and it is hypothesized that the observed local gray matter decrease in subjects experiencing DV reflects an alteration of hippocampal function and postnatal neurogenesis with resulting changes of volume in remote brain regions.

Guidelines for the process of cross-cultural adaptation of self-report measures.
The guidelines described in this document are based on a review of cross-cultural adaptation in the medical, sociological, and psychological literature and led to the description of a thorough adaptation process designed to maximize the attainment of semantic, idiomatic, experiential, and conceptual equivalence between the source and target questionnaires.

Developing and evaluating cross-cultural instruments from minimum requirements to optimal models
Major approaches to developing international HRQL measures are reviewed, and various methods and criteria that have been recommended for evaluating measurement equivalence in comparisons of research across national and cultural contexts are discussed. Expand
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. Expand
