Tricky Memory

Produced by Scientifilms


Memory is not a photobook where your images of the past are kept faithfully recorded. The last neuroscience discoveries show surprising results: false memories, distortion, modification, déjà vus. Our memory is affected in many ways, and deceives us every day. The very fact of recalling souvenirs modifies them. The everyday consequences are manyfold. To what extent can we rely on our souvenirs? How much credit can we give them during trials? Even more shocking, scientists have proved to be able to manipulate our memory: creating artificial souvenirs, deleting, emphasizing or restoring them on demand. In order to explain the scientific theories and lab tests, CGI will show the link between behaviors and the brain’s mechanisms. Whereas visual effects will help to distinguish memories from facts.
