Source-monitoring error


Source-monitoring error is the term used by the many fields of neuroscience for the brain's failure to correctly determine whether a specific memory comes from short term or long term memory and which other memories might be associated with it.

This sort of error has been linked to Schizophrenia [1] and other milder cases of delusion [2].
