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.
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.
The Memory Dynamics Lab extends its heartiest congratulations to senior project student Eleonora Beier as she prepares to head off to graduate school with a prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Nora plans to continue her work on music cognition and language.
