Déjà vu, which is French for “already seen,” is usually so fleeting that psychologists have until recently thought it impossible to study, Moulin said.
But for some people, the feeling of having been there before is persistent. Moulin and other researchers at the university are working with such people on what they say is the world’s first study of “chronic déjà vu.”
The man who refused treatment not only genuinely believed he had met Moulin before, he gave details about the times and places of the “remembered” meetings, Moulin said. The man believed he could hear the same bird singing the same song in the same tree every time he went out.
Chronic déjà vu sufferers are not only overwhelmed by a sense of familiarity for new experiences, they can provide plausible and elaborate justifications to back up their feeling, Moulin said.
