The past decade has witnessed a great expansion in knowledge about the brain mechanisms underlying active forgetting in its varying forms.
Lab member and recent Goldwater Scholar Mx. Hadley Parum has just been awarded a competitive undergraduate research grant from Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology. This funding will help support their joint Psychology-Music Senior Project, titled “Varying Pitch Interval as Cued Musical Context Demonstrates the Perceptual Similarity of Polyrhythms.” Congratulations, Hadley!!!
In this new publication, we highlight instead how forgetfulness serves many purposes within our everyday experience, giving rise to some of our best characteristics.
