Popular Myths about Memory : Media Representations versus Scientific Evidence Hardback
Misconceptions about memory phenomena often go hand-in-hand with popular misrepresentations of its function in media.
In Popular Myths about Memory, Brian H. Bornstein examines how the representation of memory in novels, movies, and television shows often clashes with scientific research.
Bornstein discusses the consequences of these myths on the popular understanding of memory and its functions.
Depictions of amnesia, eyewitness accounts, and superior memory are just a few of the processes explored and debunked.
This book is recommended for scholars interested in psychology, media and film studies, literary studies, and communication studies.
