This chapter addresses the following questions: Why confabulating patients make errors when retrieving their pasts? Why is confabulation on some occasions indistinguishable from a true memory, whereas on other occasions it has such bizarre or semantically anomalous content? Is confabulation a pure memory disorder, or does the fact that it involves the patient's past, present, and future reflect a disruption of how personal temporality is experienced?

Keywords:   confabulation, memory, past, false memories, temporality
