Summary:

Des lettres mystérieuses, un engrenage inexorable... Éric reçoit une lettre signée d’une certaine Judith. Qui est Judith ? Éric l’ignore. Qui est Éric ? Judith le sait. La première missive, sibylline mais plaisante, en appelle une seconde, puis une autre. Judith en connaît décidément beaucoup sur Éric, ses relations, son passé. Elle l’observe sans répit, le provoque, le met à l’épreuve. Et voilà qu’il accepte de jouer, avec une parfaite inconnue, une partie asymétrique dont il ne connaît, ni ne comprend les règles... Amnesia est un thriller doublé d’une fascinante étude de personnalité. Si le mystère de l’identité et des motifs de Judith soutiennent le récit, c’est Éric qui est en le centre. Frédérique Vervoort raconte l’histoire à travers ses yeux : rien de ce qu’il fait, pense ou ressent n’échappe au scalpel de l’auteur, qui expose son univers avec minutie et brosse de formidables portraits de ses proches. Rien de la vie d’Éric ne nous échappe... sauf ce que sait Judith. Virtuose et oppressant ! La mise en scène, les dialogues percutants exaltent la dimension quasi cinématographique du roman et consacrent Frédérique Vervoort comme reine du suspens. Un thriller psychologique parfaitement construit et haletant jusqu'à la dernière page ! EXTRAIT Éric, discrètement, déplia la lettre, qu’il connaissait par cœur. Même écriture, même style, même parfum, même signature. Et toujours ce lot de menaces cryptées qu’il ne comprenait pas. Qui pourtant se précisaient. Sous couvert de badinerie, l’inconnue se permettait de faire des remarques sur son caractère, témoignait d’une alarmante connaissance de son passé, et pour finir, s’en prenait à Marion, dont il devinait la rage quand elle l’apprendrait. Éric ne voyait toujours pas où cette Judith voulait en venir. Mais elle était en train de franchir les limites du tolérable. À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR Maître-assistante à la Haute École Charlemagne en Belgique, Frédérique Vervoort réside à Liège. Franco-belge, elle demeure attachée à l'héritage culturel de ses deux pays d ́origine. L'écriture la passionne depuis toujours, mais c'est seulement maintenant qu'elle prend le temps de s'y consacrer et de partager avec les lecteurs ce qui n'était, jusqu'alors, qu'un plaisir personnel. Ses romans et nouvelles nous plongent dans une atmosphère intimiste et mystérieuse. Suspense garanti pour ce remarquable auteur qui marche sur les traces de Simenon.

Summary:

Matis Morelli, 19 ans, se réveille totalement amnésique à la suite d'un accident de voiture l'ayant plongé dans un coma d'une dizaine de jours. Un coma dont il ressort pour apprendre, hébété, qu'il est soupçonné d'avoir assassiné son père. Ce dernier est en effet porté disparu et son sang maculait l'intérieur de la voiture que conduisait Matis le soir de l'accident. Cette révélation fait surgir un flash-back terrifiant dans l'esprit du jeune homme, qui se revoit dans un entrepôt, pointant une arme vers un homme gisant dans une mare de sang. En sortant de l'hôpital quelques jours plus tard, Matis est abordé par Anouk, sa soi-disant ex-petite amie, qui lui révèle non seulement qu'il est devenu un délinquant "pour faire suer [s]on père", mais également qu'il mettait à profit sa maîtrise du kung-fu pour le compte d'une espèce de fou surnommé le Chirurgien. Complètement dépassé et refusant de croire qu'il est réellement un assassin, Matis entreprend de reconstituer ce passé qui plane comme une ombre menaçante au-dessus de sa tête. Mais à qui peut-il faire confiance alors que les témoignages des gens qui affirment le connaître se contredisent? [SDM].

Summary:

In this sweeping synthesis, Neal J. Cohen and Howard Eichenbaum bring togetherconverging findings from neuropsychology, neuroscience, and cognitive science that provide thecritical clues and constraints for developing a more comprehensive understanding of memory.Specifically, they offer a cognitive neuroscience theory of memory that accounts for the nature ofmemory impairment exhibited in human amnesia and animal models of amnesia, that specifies thefunctional role played by the hippocampal system in memory, and that provides further understandingof the componential structure of memory.The authors' central thesis is that the hippocampal systemmediates a capacity for declarative memory, the kind of memory that in humans supports consciousrecollection and the explicit and flexible expression of memories. They argue that this capacityemerges from a representation of critical relations among items in memory, and that such arelational representation supports the ability to make inferences and generalizations from memory,and to manipulate and flexibly express memory in countless ways. In articulating such a descriptionof the fundamental nature of declarative representation and of the mnemonic capabilities to which itgives rise, the authors' theory constitutes a major extension and elaboration of the earlierprocedural-declarative account of memory.Support for this view is taken from a variety ofexperimental studies of amnesia in humans, nonhuman primates, and rodents. Additional support isdrawn from observations concerning the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of the hippocampal system.The data taken from divergent literatures are shown to converge on the central theme of hippocampalinvolvement in declarative memory across species and across behavioral paradigms.Neal J. Cohen isAssistant Professor in the Amnesia Research Laboratory at Beckman Institute for Advanced Science andTechnology, and in the Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois. Howard Eichenbaum isProfessor of Psychology and Neurobiology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Summary:

Enough has been learnt about the organic amnesia syndrome for research to be driven by theoretical ideas about the possible causes of the memory deficits underlying it. These theoretical ideas attempt to specify whether one or several distinct functional deficits cause the memory problems typically seen in the syndrome, what the precise nature of these deficits actually is, and what is the exact location of the lesions that cause them.; This special issue of "Memory" is devoted to articles that advance different accounts of some or all of the features of amnesia. It highlights that, although there is still no full agreement about the neuroanatomy of amnesia, whether it is a unitary condition, and the causes of and relationship between anterograde and retrograde amnesia, many theories converge in suggesting that damage to the hippocampus and its connections dirupts aspects of memory for complex associations that are ultimately represented in the neocortex.

Summary:

Russell Jacoby defines social amnesia as society's repression of remembrance--society's own past. In this book, Jacoby excavates the critical and historical concepts that have fallen prey to the dynamic of a society that strips them both of their historical and critical content. Social Amnesia is an effort to remember what is perpetually lost under the pressure of society. It is simultaneously a critique of present practices and theories in psychology. Jacoby's new self-evaluation has the same sharp edge as the book itself, offering special insights into the evolution of psychological theory during the past two decades. In his probing, self-critical new introduction, Jacoby maintains that any serious appraisal of psychology or sociology, or any discipline, must seek to separate the political from the theoretical. He discusses how in the years since Social Amnesia was first published society has oscillated from extreme subjectivism to extreme objectivism, which feed off each other and constitute two forms of social amnesia: a forgetting of the past and a pseudo-historical consciousness. Social Amnesia contains a forceful argument for "thinking against the grain--an endeavor that remains as urgent as ever." It is an important work for sociologists, psychologists, and psychoanalysts.

Summary:

Amnesia: Clinical, Psychological and Medicolegal Aspects, 2nd Edition explores the clinical, psychological, and medicolegal aspects of amnesia. Experimental studies of the organic amnesic syndrome are presented and memory disorders associated with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) are described. The role of amnesia in cerebral disease, the neuropathology of amnesic states, and psychogenic memory loss are also considered. This book is comprised of 11 chapters and begins with a discussion on experimental studies of the organic amnesic syndrome, along with certain associated studies of normal memory. The reader is then introduced to the link between amnesia and cerebral pathology; transient global amnesia and its clinical manifestations; the amnesic syndrome and its relation to Korsakoff syndrome; traumatic amnesia; amnesias of temporal lobe origin; and memory disorders following ECT. A neuropathological examination of the human brain in cases of amnesia is presented, and examples of the psychopathology of memory are provided. The final chapter analyzes amnesia from a medicolegal point of view. This monograph will be of interest to clinicians, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychopathologists, psychologists, and medicolegal practitioners.

Summary:

If the only witness to a murder has amnesia, how do you catch the killer? Instead of matching fingerprints or DNA, forensic psychologist Dr. Peter Zak solves cases by studying psychological clues and phenomena. Peter, whose specialty is the brain and behavior, consults for the Boston public defenders office, analyzing the thought processes and personalities of witnesses and defendants. Sylvia Jackson was shot in the head and left for dead, her boyfriend murdered. Waking from a coma after six weeks, she remembers nothing-until three months later, when she begins to recall details of the crime and the killer. Finally, Syl accuses her ex-husband, remembering what seems like incontrovertible evidence of his guilt. But Stuart Jackson seems destroyed by his ex's ordeal; could he really be guilty of this vicious crime? Peter quit consulting on trials a year ago when his wife was brutally murdered by a killer angered by Peter's suggestion of an insanity defense. But when his old colleagues call for help with this bizarre case, he's hooked. It's Peter's job to determine how reliable Syl's memory really is, and to use those memories to uncover the truth. Amnesia is guaranteed to be the start of an intriguing and original crime series.

Summary:

In this new collection of essays on memory and amnesia in the postmodern world, cultural critic Andreas Huyssen considers how nationalism, literature, art, politics, and the media are obsessed with the past. The great paradox of our fin-de-siecle culture is that novelty is even more associated with memory than with future expectation. Drawing heavily on the dilemmas of contemporary Germany, Huyssen's discussion of cultural memory illustrates the nature of contemporary nationalism, the work of such artists and thinkers as Anselm Kiefer, Alexander Kluge, and Jean Baudrillard, and many others. The book includes illustrations from contemporary Germany.

Summary:

A stranger enters the city archives, corners a librarian, and begins to tell him a story. The librarian is supposed to be married in four hours' time, but the stranger compels him to listen. Many hours later he is still listening, and still unmarried. The stranger's name is Izzy Darlow, and the story revolves around his fractured family and their obsessions. The family home is a labyrinth. His older brother, Aaron, conducts secret and increasingly perilous experiments in his attic bedroom. His younger brother, Josh, who speaks with a lisp but sings like an angel, wanders the streets at night consumed by visions of destruction. Izzy's own place in this curious family is complicated by disturbing influences: the terrifying books he reads compulsively in the school library, his charismatic but dangerous friend Campbell, the vicious force of his emerging sexuality. Woven into Izzy's tale is the story of a young woman called Katie, who has been confined to a mental hospital as a result of a cruel violation suffered in her youth. Where do these two stories meet? What is Izzy leaving out, what has he forgotten? And why can the anxious librarian not extricate himself from the web that Izzy weaves around him? As the story swirls deeper, taking reference from architecture, literature, history and myth, the reader is drawn into Izzy's frighteningly dislocated world, where the only response to suffering and guilt is amnesia.
