Three separate clinical cases of corroborated recovered memory were reported in the 1996 poster session at the proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Recollections of Trauma (June 1996; Port de Bourgenay, France). The second case was reported by Graham Davies and Noelle Robertson in the presentation “A Recovered Memory of a Traumatic Event—A Single Case Study." "Mr. B", a schoolmaster, reported lapses of consciousness in response to stimuli like flashes of light and the sight of a handgun on a television program, as well as nightmares which referenced a shooting and a demand for money. During the following months he recovered a memory of a traumatic armed robbery which occurred in his school office, with corroboration existing in the form of contemporaneous note and damaged clothing consistent with being hit with an air rifle pellet.
