Memory Errors in Real Life



Memory Errors in Real Life Laypersons are often unaware of the extent to which memory errors (including memory of events that did not occur and memory distortions) are commonplace and widespread. The purpose of this assignment is to make you think of not only memory errors in real life, but also the reasons behind their occurrence. Consider the steps listed below: Read the “Adaptive Constructive Processes and the Future of Memory” and “Creating False Memories” articles which offer an overview of memory errors and their origins. Keep in mind that your textbook is another valuable source of information regarding memory errors. Select a case mentioned in a news article where memory errors have been known or can be assumed to have occurred (e.g., eyewitness testimony, instances of recovered memories of traumatic experiences, etc.). Describe the main features of the errors, their consequences, and their possible source(s) (i.e., what are the features of human memory that make the errors possible?).
