With Alzheimer’s, tangled memories may be culprit in skewed stories

If you've ever talked with someone who has shared an experience with you, but remembers the details very differently than you do, your circumstances are not unusual. Individuals tend to view each experience through a unique lens, because we are shaped by our past experiences, and perhaps our genes. For example, it's well known that there can be multiple witnesses to a crime, yet each witness has a different view of what happened, and most are extremely sure their own version is the correct one. Another good example might be sibling recollections. Siblings often remember events that they shared as children very differently.
