ABSTRACT
Memory is a cognitive system that allows registering, storing, elaborating and retrieving information about what we experience; some times with high levels of precision, and some times with dangerous imprecision. This latest condition is called False Memories and has captured the interest of researchers for at least the last two decades (e.g., legal, health, and educational fields). Psychological research in the last two decades has characterized false memories and offered explanations for them. This paper summarizes most of these meaningful explanations, with the aim of getting researches and lay people to know about them, to prevent their pervasive effects and, as far as possible, to get involved in any type of scientific work that may lead to understanding them better
