Invisible Gorilla Revised Summary

The Illusion of Memory

  • The illusion of memory happens when what we remember is different from what we think we remember. What is stored in memory is not an exact replica of reality, but a re-creation of it. When we recall a memory, we integrate details we remember with our expectations of what we should remember. Emotional memories, like the ones we have for 9/11, are more likely to induce strong, vivid recall – regardless of whether they are accurate. Beware of memories accompanied by strong emotions and vivid details. They are just as likely to be wrong as mundane memories, but you’re far less likely to realize it.

  1. I paid the guys at to set up my blog, which is a modification of the standard WordPress blog. If you can’t afford to pay someone to get you going, you can consider using a crowd sourcing service like Kickstarter or Indegogo to raise the necessary funds. Otherwise you can just go to WordPress and see if you can set up your own for free. I don’t think you have to be too tech savvy to do so. Good luck. Let me know if you get something going.
