by Anonymous on Sep. 23rd, 2013

The above title is the opening verse from the song "As Time Goes By" heard in the classic film "Casablanca", and serves nicely as an explanation of psychologist and memory manipulation expert Elizabeth Loftus's work in memory, and specifically the ability to alter or plant false memories. As she explains in this recent TEDTalk, her investigations into the field of how, why, and what we remember have not only led to some very interesting insights, but also threats, and even lawsuits.
