Many people experience fictional memories, particularly of childhood. Sometimes these memories correspond to experienced events but not always. Fictional memories help us to process our own life stories and our experience of them helps to shape us. Martin Conway will consider childhood memories, those of adulthood and some of the wilder claims about memories that can be found on the internet.
Professor Martin Conway is Director of the Centre for Memory and Law at City University, London. He has researched human memory for over 32 years and has published numerous papers, books and other articles, as well as making media contributions to television, radio and newspapers and giving many public addresses.
