A word denoted to the gaps in our memory that we fill in with a plausable but yet imagined memory.
And no, it's different to a hallucination, as a confabulation can only be retrospective (hallucinations are happening at the time)
"No, that didn't really happen, George. What you have just experienced was a confabulation."

"But i swear that time in year 8 the teacher was wearing huge come fuck me boots to class..."

Kayli: "oh don't mind bob, he's just suffering from confabulation. poor guy"
