The truth about false memory

The University of Adelaide
Australian Research Council
Fernandez, Dr Jorge

Project Summary

This project is aimed at determining whether reports of long-forgotten episodes of sexual abuse arising during psychotherapy should be regarded as memories or not. This issue hinges on a number of conceptual questions about memory. The project will illuminate the debate on recovered memories of sexual abuse by addressing those questions.
