Anne Cleary writing in Science Alert makes the following points:
- Déjà vu means "already seen" in French.
- It refers to that weird feeling you have already had the same experience.
- The most common Déjà vu trigger is a scene, place, or conversation.
- Some types of brain seizures can also generate feelings of Déjà vu—however, this needs more research.
