Constructing a system of opposites also helps to provide a large conceptual space in which to place confabulation. The existence of such opposite or mirror-image syndromes also helps to dispel any notion that confabulation is somehow a universal feature of any sort of serious brain damage. Of course, there is no such thing as the opposite of something; rather, something is the opposite of another thing in a certain respect. One feature of confabulation is the confabulator’s claim that he has certain abilities that he in fact lacks, such as the ability to remember, to move his arm, or, in the case of split-brain patients, to explain why his left arm did something.

This is one way to explain the connection between confabulation and the disinhibition that frequently accompanies it; the doubt normal people feel when they consider certain ideas is caused by the same process that normally inhibits inappropriate responses.
