Alien abductees prone to false memories

Do you have memories of being abducted by aliens and whisked away in a spaceship?You wouldn’t be alone. Several thousand people worldwide claim to have had such close encounters, researchers say. But in a new study, a psychology expert at London’s Goldsmiths College says these experiences are proof of the frailty of the human memory, rather than evidence of life in other galaxies.
“Maybe what we’re dealing with here is false memories, and not that people are actually being abducted and taken aboard spaceships,” says Professor Chris French, who surveyed 19 self-proclaimed alien abductees.
