Could a hippocampal “suppression mode” yield unintended consequences while driving down memory lane? A recent publication reviews the evidence.
New findings support the broad principle that retrieval suppression is achieved by regulating hippocampal processes in tandem with domain-specific brain regions involved in reinstating specific content, in an activity-dependent fashion. Upsetting events sometimes trigger intrusive images that cause distress and that may contribute to psychiatric disorders. People often respond to intrusions by suppressing their retrieval, […]
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.
