False Memories and Distorted Beliefs

The Rhodes Series presents: Stephen Lindsay '81

This lecture introduces the Source Monitoring Framework, which aims to describe the mechanisms by which the mind/brain makes moment-by-moment inferences regarding the sources of its own contents. The lecture then explores how the SM Framework can help us understand cases in which people evidence rich and compelling illusory memories and mistaken beliefs.

Stephen Lindsay '81 is a cognitive psychologist at the University of Victoria whose research explores human memory. He is currently serving as Coordinator of the Cognition and Brain Sciences (CaBS) graduate program. Lindsay is also Editor in Chief of Psychological Science, the flagship journal of the Association for Psychological Science.
