Example text

These authors found that the validity of retrospective information obtained from depressed patients and their families was questionable. Depression can distort memory and perception. The frontal lobes are the main centre for memory and the retrieval process. Also involved in the consolidation of memory is the brain structure known as the hippocampus which is bilateral in the medial temporal lobes. Stress can have a detrimental effect on the function of the hippocampus due to high levels of glucocorticoids in conditions of prolonged stress.

It is selective in that certain aspects of experience are retained and others are discarded. Therefore, only certain parts of an experience undergo consolidation and become part of long-term memory. Much depends on how we encode information, and this will determine what and how we remember. If we process the meaning of the information which we are exposed to, or which we are trying to learn then a fuller memory of it will be consolidated. The next step, the act of recall or retrieval, is a reconstructive act.

This might motivate a person to add new information to a memory report. Furthermore, their involvement in fantasy in hypnosis may also cause them to include some of these imaginations into the memory report. Thirdly, the increase in suggestibility in hypnosis and the willingness to put aside any critical judgements may make it even more difficult for the hypnotised person to distinguish between true memories and the fantasised details they had added. This combined with the belief that hypnosis produces accurate recall could make the person convinced that it was all true memories they had reported.
