In the UK, 23-year-old student was the victim of a strange case of deja vu, registered in the history of medicine. The young man, whose name was not released, was not able to lead a normal life and left the University after him there was an unexplained manifestations of chronic case of deja vu. The young man stopped to watch TV, listen to the radio or even read newspapers and magazines, as he was sure that it all he had seen, heard or read before.
The patient told doctors that "trapped in a time loop" and feels like every minute of their lives the past.

Details of the case have been described in a report published in the journal Journal of Medical case Reports.

Doctors were baffled as man did not suffer any neurological disorders that are usually seen in people who are often experiencing deja vu effect (from the French. The phrase "déjà vu").

It is believed that the trigger for the onset of this phenomenon are panic attacks. Such a condition may also be exacerbated by intake of LSD.

Dr. Christine Wells, an expert in the field of Psychology, University of Sheffield Hollen, said that probably in medical practice is the first case in which the person experiences a constant feeling of deja vu, which is caused by anxiety.

While most people from time to time may experience a similar condition, but repetitive and intense episodes of déjà vu is usually seen in people suffering from bouts in the temporal lobe, or the so-called temporal lobe epilepsy.

However, a scan of the brain in young men, there were no signs of seizures or other neurological disorders.


For the first time a student complained of symptoms of deja vu in early 2007, shortly after admission. He felt unjustified anxiety, in particular, he had a fear of germs, because of which he always washed his hands and took a shower for two or three times a day. Anxiety gradually began to deteriorate soon after the start of the course, and he began to experience déjà vu.

Initially, these episodes lasted only a minute, and then become extremely protracted. For example, while on vacation in any place that young people have already visited, he believed that the "fell into a temporary loop."

"Instead of anxiety sensations of something familiar, which is usually associated with the effect of deja vu, our patient complained that really could to recall specific events of the past, not just find them familiar. In most cases, this is a side effect of seizures or dementia. However, in this case, deja vu, most likely due to an alarm condition, which delayed reaction caused by neural impulses in the brain. If confirmed, it would be the first reported case in the history of "psychogenic deja vu." Thus, we can conclude that it is a stressful condition causes deja vu "- said Dr. Wells.

Science still does not know how and why there is deja vu. There is a theory that the dysfunction of neurons causes a temporary glitch during the processing of incoming information to the brain.

Now Dr. Christine Wells is conducting additional studies to prove the relationship of clinical anxiety and bouts of deja vu.
