"How We Remember, Why We Forget, and Why it Matters"

Abstract:  Why do some people learn at faster rates than others, and retain information for a longer time? How does learning become more efficient? Can there be too much leaning? Drs. Sheri Mizumori [] (UW) and Daphna Shohamy [] (Columbia University) will discuss recent research that reveals new insights into how the brain selects and retains information in memory.
