Abstract

Description

Our memories are the essence of who we are. But our memories are not merely a record of the past, rather our memories are a guide to both the present and the future. What we remember influences how we learn new things, the decisions we make in the present, and goals to which we aspire in the future. Join Dr. Alison Preston as she explores how the human brain builds memories that can be used to anticipate future events.
