"Memory and Imagination: Functions of Episodic Simulation and Retrieval"
Thursday, March 31, 5 p.m., McConnell 103
Daniel L. Schacter, William R. Kenan, Jr., Professor of Psychology, Harvard Universitiy, will discuss the important function of memory in simulating or imagining future experiences. Studies have shown that simulating future events depends on much of the same neural and cognitive machinery as does remembering past events. Schacter will consider neural, cognitive and functional aspects of episodic simulation and episodic memory in contributing to a range of cognitive tasks.
Open to all; refreshments served 4:30-5 p.m., McConnell foyer.
