Transcript of DEja Vu

Is it normal? Why? Why? Conclusion Causes? -temporal lope epilepsy is commonly associated with déjà vu, and frequently is followed by an unknown temporal lope seizure in the brain.

-many parapsychologists believe it is related to a past-life experiences, and divided attention.

-may simply be a fantasy or wish of fulfillment, or a mismatch in the brain that causes the brain to mistake the present for the past. Déjà vu is an expression, derived from the French, meaning “already seen”.

When is occurs, it seems to spark our memory of a place, person, or event, that has seemed to already happen in our lives.

Whether it is a sign to stop, and pay special attention to what is taking place, learn a lesson, or complete what is not yet finished, Déjà vu has been a mystery to humanity for centuries. -feels unhealthy, as if the compelling feelings are obsessive or compulsive.

-can occur in a business, friendship, or family relationship, and is in fact completely normal.

-70% of the population reports of having experienced some form of déjà vu in their lifetime.

-highest range of incidents occurs in people 15-25 years Deja Vu -based off of what we can remember.

-people remember senses that they feel like they have already experienced - a sensational feeling that is often confusing.

-neurologists have proven that often a tiny bit of seizure activity in the neurons of a brain portion called the hippocampus cause deja vu.

-hippocampus is a major contributor to memory, and performs vital functions to store memory and revive your senses.

-seziure doesn't cause harm, but messes up your current memory. Déjà vu is often linked to precognitive experiences – where someone gets a feeling that they know exactly what is going to happen next.

Drugs and illness often cause hallucinations that create false memories, also resulting in déjà vu.

Memory centers of the brain are often responsible for memory based experiences that are healthy, where a person sees, hears, or smells something that stirs a feeling that you can associate with the past Dr. Alan Brown has come up with a theory called divided attention. When we are distracted with something else, we subliminally take in what’s around us, but may not register is completely.

When we focus on what we are doing, the surroundings about the person seem to be already familiar. Much like multitasking, our brain multi-tasks with our senses, and often results in déjà vu.

People have experienced deja vu for years, and some think it’s just a coincidence, while others believe it’s an act of God. No matter what it is, everything happens for a reason, so value that experience for what it is.

We personally support the theory above, of divided attention. This theory is not related to a medical issue, but is more of a coincidence in everyday life. Not harmful, deja vu is just another mystery of life. By: Madi Bowe and Kellie Trimmer Commonly looked at, as an experience that is “immemorially known,” doctors, scientists, and people around the world have a range of mixed theories to support this phenomenon.

For example, in our era, we are brought up to consider anyone who isn’t a close friend or family, to be a stranger.

Although at times, you meet people who you feel like you have known for years. They aren’t strangers, but people who have "shared your "history - this is Deja Vu. What is Deja Vu? Today? How do you know if you are experiencing Deja Vu? Sources show that the reasons you feel deja vu you get these "symptoms" -You have a weird feeling that you cannot quite put your finger on
-your vison might become fuzzy
-you feel like you could have been to this place before More scientifically speaking... You have two basic areas of rememberance in your brain, recall and familiarity. your recall picks up things that you can " put your finger on" and familiarity is when you sort of remember something, but deja vu has to deal with your senses. It is more of the familiarity experience. Therefore, when yo feel it, it is not exactly something you can just say happened.
-its also more of an individuals experience.
-different for everyone Some scientists beleive that Deja Vu happens differently for people, but most of the time you do not know you are experiencing, since you get a weird sensation. What is Deja Vu??? DEJA VU
