The Nature of Memory

“Ample evidence suggests that upon their retrieval, items in long-term memory enter a transient special state, in which they might become prone to change. The process that generates this state is dubbed reconsolidation.” (Yadin Dudai, 2006)

“Extensive research by neuroscientists since the late 1990s has found that the brain is innately equipped with a potent process, known as memory reconsolidation, that can fundamentally modify or erase a targeted, specific learning, even complex human emotional learnings formed subcortically, outside of awareness Such learnings are found to underlie and drive most of the problems and symptoms addressed in psychotherapy and counseling, so the relevance and value of memory reconsolidation for the clinical field are profound.” (Ecker, Bruce. “Memory reconsolidation understood and misunderstood.” International Journal of Neuropsychotherapy, Jan 2015.

“Implicit memory, sometimes called procedural memory, sometimes emotional memory, involves parts of the brain that do not require conscious processing during encoding or retrieval. When implicit memory is retrieved, the neural net profiles that are reactivated involve circuits in the brain that are a fundamental part of our everyday experience of life: behaviors, emotions and images. These implicit elements form part of the foundation for our subjective sense of ourselves: we act, feel and imagine without recognition of the influence of past experience on our present reality.” (Siegel, 1999)
