When I was a research neuroscientist, memory was one of my primary fields of study, and it remains a personal favorite.
Ever wonder why you can remember your first-grade teacher’s name but not where you left your keys 30 seconds ago? Why traumatic memories seem so much stronger than happy memories? How amnesia works? How can you be sure which memories are accurate and which are not?
In this session, we will discuss the fascinating research behind memory formation and consolidation. We will explore both the strengths and weaknesses of memory, and highlight some simple strategies to boost our own memories.
