A Trick Of The Mind
What the students didn't know was that one of the events could not have happened to them. This "non-occurring" event was: "Having a nurse remove a skin sample from my little finger." This medical procedure has never taken place in the UK. By contrast, another of the events was a relatively frequent procedure that would apply to many - "having a milk tooth extracted by the dentist before the age of six". Three control events were included that may or may not have happened. These were: "Finding a £10 note in the car park"; "Getting sick and going to casualty late at night"; and "Feeling an earthquake".

I have a crystal clear memory of me and a friend, Jenny, being chased across a field by our parents for going to a park by ourselves. We were maybe five or six. We ducked and dodged them and ended up hiding in the bathroom. It never happened. I can remember *perfectly* how they undid the catch to get in the bathroom. I couldn't be in the room and outside watching them open the door!
