FMSF Short Bibliography
When the FMS Foundation started in March of 1992, there already existed a
large body of scientific research that was pertinent to the issue of recovered
memories. Of note are many peer-reviewed articles on the reconstructive nature
of memory and on the unreliability of "memories" elicited with hypnosis or
other "memory enhancement techniques." Since 1992, numerous articles have
been published that use that basic scientific research to explain or address
aspects of the current FMS phenomenon. Following are just a few. (A complete
bibliography of reprints available through FMSF will be sent upon request.
Please enclose stamped self-addressed envelope.) Only articles followed by an
order # and price are available through FMSF.
