摘要: Memory and Cognition lab 系列:将汇聚天下的“记忆与认知”实验室。系列七推出:来自Washingdon University in St. Louis的 McDermott Memory and Cognition Lab 。

They are interested in human memory and its many manifestations and interactions with other cognitive systems.? A sample of current research programs includes:

  1. Episodic future thought and its relation to remembering.? We as humans are facile at recollecting the past and envisioning plausible, specific future scenarios.? Recent work in our lab and elsewhere has shown the neural substrates of the two capacities to be highly similar.? A full understanding of memory retrieval will need to incorporate the relation between these two fundamental capacities.

  2. Taking a test on newly-learned information helps solidify later memory for that information.? Why?? Ongoing behavioral and neuroimaging projects are informing this important question.?

Kathleen McDermott is the lab's Principal Investigator.
