Example text

It is easy to appreciate what life might be like if we could not form new memories by reading a neuropsychologist's description of H. 's behavior and feelings: This young man (H. ) . . had had no obvious memory disturbance before his operation, having, for example, passed his high school examinations without difficulty. (He sustained) a minor head injury at the age of 7. Minor (seizures) began one year later, and then, at the age of 16, he began to have generalized seizures which, despite heavy medication, increased in frequency and severity until, by the age of 27, he was no longer able to work .

Suggesting some detail, like a license plate, when it could not possibly have been seen, not only induced hypnotized people to say they had seen it, but also led them to offer partial descriptions of the license number.

The hypnotized people were told that under hypnosis it would be possible for them to see the entire accident again just as clearly as they had seen it the first time, only this time they would be able to slow it down or zoom in on details if they chose to. But the hypnotized people made more errors and were more susceptible to leading questions than their unhypnotized counterparts. The study showed that hypnosis does not reduce retrieval difficulties; it does not allow people to retrieve a true memory.
