VALASEK, Cláudia Aparecida; BOGGIO, Paulo Sérgio; ALBUQUERQUE, Pedro  and  CORDEIRO, Quirino. False memory and autism: what is the extent of the semantic deficits?. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2015, vol.17, n.3, pp. 79-88. ISSN 1516-3687.

In the recent decades, the interest in investigation of false memory has been amplified. However, just a few studies investigate the underlying electrophysiological components involved in true and false recognition, especially with regard to patients with autism. The aim of this article is to present the studies investigating false memory and semantic processing in people with typical development using electroencephalography in addition to (presenting) providing the restricted literature on the subject in patients with autism. There is a debate about semantic deficits in autism, but there are few studies in this area and the results are contradictory. Finally, new directions for the development and improvement of new studies are presented.

Keywords : false memory; DRM paradigm; autism; electroencephalography; evoked potential.
