FILMED JUN 2013 • POSTED SEP 2013 • TEDGlobal 2013

TED presents psychologist Elizabeth Loftus who studies memories. More precisely, she studies false memories, when people either remember things that didn’t happen or remember them differently from the way they really were. It’s more common than you might think, and Loftus shares some startling stories and statistics, and raises some important ethical questions we should all remember to consider.
