Trauma and Delayed Memory: A Review of the "Repressed Memories" Literature.
Flathman, Marcus
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v8 n2 p1-24 1999
Article aims to draw a balanced conclusion about trauma and memory from current information on repressed memories. Research suggests that (1) emotion impacts memory, (2) psychogenic amnesia can result from unusual levels of trauma, and (3) delayed memories are prone to errors. Inaccuracies in traumatic memories occur more often in peripheral details than central details. Child abuse issues begin and end the article. (Author/JDM)
