  • Particular experiences that are subjectively thought to be preserved in great detail and vividness. They are considered a special form of autobio graphical memories, and their most intense version can be found in individuals who are unable to forget a trau matic experience and who may feel stressed by this intrusive memory. Common examples of flashbulb memory are memories of extremely stressful personal events (such as a victimization experience) as well as his toric events, such as the events of September 11, 2001, or the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Despite their vivid ness and detail, flashbulb memories are as inaccurate and prone to distortion as other forms of long-term memory. For more information, see Conway (1995).
