What Is Déjà Vu And Why Do We Get It
However, it is a false sense of familiarity as per Neurologist Dr. Jean Khoury, MD:
“Your brain creates a sensation as if you have lived a certain situation before, but you’re unable to retrieve it from your memory and cannot identify the actual situation.”
Why do we get it?
A scientific theory suggests it is due to glitches in brain; a brief electrical malfunction that may be similar to epileptic seizure but is cannot be actually dubbed so.
- A mix-up in the brain in tracking current events and the part of brain that is responsible for recalling memories, when both are active.
- False perception to what is happening currently and something that happened earlier or occurred in past.
- The result of malfunction between short term and long-term memory storage, where short-term memories quickly make way to the long-term memory storage.
- Regularly experiencing this brain dysfunction is a cause of concern.
