What does the term ‘déjà vu’ mean?

Deja vu, pronounced day-zah vu, means “déjà vu” in French. It describes the fascinating and terrifying experience where you feel that something is very familiar, but you also know that the feeling of being familiar should not be as strong as it is. For example, when you suddenly feel like this, you will be going to school. Of course, you’ve been in this situation before – you’ve been to school for some time – but this feeling is so strong and connected right now, that you know it shouldn’t be overwhelming. Deja vu experiences are often depicted in films and books because they can make people feel like they have seen in the past. These are unusual but serene experiences that can really tell us a lot about how our brain works, especially our memories.
