It's a mind field - Mind Matters - Health And Fitness - theage.com.au

It's a mind field - Mind Matters - Health And Fitness - theage.com.au:
"'Work by psychologists such as Elizabeth Loftus has shown how easy it is to construct memories,' [says Dr. Richard Kemp, psychologist at the University of New South Wales]."

Dr. Kemp goes on to describe how university psychologists' favorite guinea pigs - college students - were shown faked photos of themselves as children in a hot air balloon with a parent and soon produced details of when and where this fictitious event ocurred. Scary!

Tell that to Gerald Amirault. Apparently, children can conjure up details after seeing pictures of a clown as well.
