Are all declarative memories false memories?

Memory is the primary constituent of our identity. Unfortunately, memories are not always a true representation of reality. So called False Memories are cases in which memories are distorted or otherwise incongruent with reality. Three cases of False Memory will be reviewed namely source-monitoring errors, suggestibility and bias.
