          Abstract

          A woman produced spontaneous confabulations after rupture of an anterior communicating artery aneurysm. She confused currently irrelevant with currently relevant information in implicit memory; confabulations about people concerned only new acquaintances; false reality could be induced by an intensive 5-minute discussion; and in a recognition task, she confused false repetitions in another modality with real item repetitions. The findings support the theory that the defect causing spontaneous confabulation precedes conscious memory processing.
