Paramnesia

Paramnesia also called as Déjà Vu, is when an individual feels as though an event has already happened or has happened in the recent past. The experience of paramnesia seems to be quite common among adults and children alike. Paramnesia or déjà vu is usually accompanied by a compelling sense of familiarity, and also a sense of “eeriness,” “strangeness,” “weirdness”. Certain researchers claim to have found ways to recreate this sensation using hypnosis.The similarity between a déjà-vu-eliciting stimulus and an existing, but different, memory trace may lead to the sensation. Thus, encountering something which evokes the experience or sensation that cannot be remembered may lead to déjà vu.
