New research suggests that experience with adversity improves control over unwanted memories. A recent publication reviews the evidence.
This year’s summer research students, representing both Bard College and the American University of Central Asia, were hard at work learning to collect and analyze brainwaves for the purposes of scoring sleep. They will put their skills to the test next semester, when we launch our newest experiment.
The University of Cambridge’s St John’s College profiles the lab, its beginnings, and current work.
Does repeated testing improve retention by reducing competition? New evidence shows that the degree to which competition between memories decreases predicts whether it will be remembered later. Read all about it in our recent publication in Scientific Reports.
