Portal Aspects of Memory Overlay in Psychoanalysis—An Object Relations Contribution to Screen Memory Phenomena

Moshe Halevi Spero, M.S.

ABSTRACT

Distortion in screen memories illustrates the unique manner in which part-object representations unite perceptions from different temporal periods. "Portal" aspects of a given source memory designate anachronistic distortions borrowed from perceptions at a subsequent time when the source memory and its full emotional significance attempted access to consciousness. The unconscious perception of recall at the subsequent occasion is represented by the appearance of portal details in the source dream. The portal concept is related to object relations theory and the psychology of memory.
