Most of us have been perplexed by a strange sense of familiarity when doing something for the first time. We feel that we have been here before, or done this before, but know for sure that this is impossible. In fact, according to numerous surveys, about two-thirds of us have experienced déjà vu at least once, and most of us have had multiple experiences. There are a number of credible scientific interpretations of déjà vu, and this book summarizes the broad range of published work from philosophy, religion, neurology, sociology, memory, perception, psychopathology, and psychopharmacology. This book also includes discussion of cognitive functioning in retrieval and familiarity, neuronal transmission, and double perception during the déjà vu experience.

Most of us have been perplexed with a strange sense of familiarity when doing something for the first time. We feel that we have been here before, or done this before, but know for sure that this is impossible. In fact, according to numerous surveys, about two-thirds of us have experienced déjà vu at least once, and most of us have had multiple experiences. This déjà vu experience has been studied since the mid-1800s and the present book summarizes the broad range of published work from philosophy, religion, neurology, sociology, memory, perception, psychopathology, and psychopharmacology. There are a number of credible scientific interpretations of déjà vu, and these fall into four categories: (a) two cognitive functions (e.g. retrieval and familiarity) are momentarily out of normal synchrony; (b) a brief alteration occurs in the usual time course of neuronal transmission; (c) an implicit familiarity with part (or all) of the present situation goes unrecognized; and (d) a 'double perception' occurs where an unattended initial perception (glance) is followed immediately by perception under full attention. The Déjà Vu Experience covers the recent scientific discoveries and theorizing in perception, cognition, and neurophysiology, which have the potential to help clarify the cause of the déjà vu experience. In addition to summarizing the major historical and contemporary theoretical approaches to the déjà vu experience, the volume should also stimulate additional research on this curious cognitive glitch.

Déjà vu is one of the most complex and subjective of all memory phenomena. It is an infrequent and striking mental experience, where the feeling of familiarity is combined with the knowledge that this feeling is false. While until recently it was an aspect of memory largely overlooked by mainstream cognitive psychology, this book brings together the growing scientific literature on déjà vu, making the case for it as a metacognitive phenomenon. The Cognitive Neuropsychology of Déjà Vu reviews clinical, experimental and neuroimaging methods, focusing on how memory disorders and neurological dysfunction relate to the experience. Examining déjà vu as a memory phenomenon, Chris Moulin explores how the experience of déjà vu in special populations, such as healthy aging or those with schizophrenia, provides new insights into understanding this phenomenon. He considers the extensive data on déjà vu in people with epilepsy, dementia and other neurological conditions, assessing neuropsychological theories of déjà vu formation. Essential reading for all students and researchers interested in memory disorders, this valuable book presents the case for déjà vu as a ‘healthy’ phenomenon only experienced by people with sufficient cognitive resources to oppose and detect the false feeling of familiarity.

Cornerstone Verse "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams" (Acts 2:17). Have you ever had a dEjA vu experience and were convinced you had been in that place, doing the same thing with the same people around, in the same environment, though you are certain you have never been in that place before? Why do we have these dEjA vu experiences where we are convinced we have lived through the same thing before but consciously understand we have never been in the place prior to this experience? What does dEjA vu mean and where did the term originate? This is simple to define yet challenging to explain. It is a French term meaning "deja," already ] vu, "seen" or already seen. The dictionary indicates it is "the illusion of having already experienced something actually being experienced for the first time." This is not to be confused with the overly utilized colloquial statements used today to explain the monotony of an event that occurs redundantly. Scientists, psychologists, counselors, and the like, have made numerous attempts to explain this phenomenon, though the tendency is to relate the extraordinary with the ordinary to make sense of it based upon empirical data. In the case of dEjA vu, mankind will never be able to utilize statistical analysis because it defies this kind of scrutiny. God reveals certain things to us in His perfect timing, and this is oftentimes not our timing. God desires to bring us closer to His will for us, not by forcing us into choices, but by allowing free will and providing a second chance to do what is right in His eyes. This book was written as a direct result of God speaking to me in a dream regarding dEjA vu and provides an in-depth discovery of dEjA vu experiences as it relates to second chances God offers to us during the course of our lifetime.
