Undergraduates Sean Murphy, Clarence A. L. Brontë, Zall Hirschstein, and Zien Hodge (pictured from left to right) spent some of their spring break presenting the lab’s recent work at the International Convention of Psychological Science. Congratulations to the entire lab for sharing the memories.
Memories are made here in the Memory Dynamics Lab’s recently refurbished student workspace. The room provides the research space and technology. The students provide the insights and good times.
A new report in Psychonomic Bulletin & Review reveals that people can intentionally forget previously experienced events by changing their mental representations of contextual information associated with those events. The work has been featured in numerous scientific blogs, Psychology Today, and the Guardian, among others.
