If I asked you what you had eaten on May 15 last year would you remember? What if I asked you what sound a cat makes? Seems easier right, but why? Memory is one of the most complex phenomena that is studied in the scientific field right now and it doesn't only involve the hippocampus. Though complex, memory is prone to errors that can manifest as false memories. Are you sure you know what sound the cat makes?
Dive deep into your memories as we navigate through the systems that help you remember, the important research and techniques used to study memories, why it is so easy to forget, what amnesia is and the efforts to treat it. We will be joined by many experts in the field who will make a lasting impression on your students!
