Memories are made of...

From Radio Netherlands:
It seems that our memories are less than trustworthy, and Dutch experimental psychologist Elke Geraerts knows some impressive tricks of the trade for proving this.
"When a therapist is suggestive, for example, using guided imagery in which you ask subjects to imagine being abused, at a certain point, maybe also combined with hypnosis, subjects falsely recall these abusive events."
