Memories guide our lives, but how do we sift through the vast array of accumulated memories to find the relevant ones and ignore unpleasant or otherwise unwelcome thoughts? Using the tools of cognitive neuroscience to decode the mechanisms responsible for adaptively retrieving, consolidating, and forgetting memories, the Memory Dynamics Lab aims to identify evidence-based strategies designed to help learners capitalize on these mental operations. We are actively in the process of designing and testing algorithms that harness brainwaves (EEG/ERPs recorded while learners are either awake or asleep) in order to help individuals remember when/what they want to remember and forget when/what they want to forget. We invite you to discover more about our work.
