WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

It's the thought of your childhood home. It's that comforting aroma you can still smell ten years later. It's the way you define yourself. It's your memory. Where is memory stored? How do we recall? Why do we forget? We'll shine a light on these and many other questions about memory from a molecular, psychological, and emotional perspective. Discover how your long-term memories can be naturally twisted, tweaked, and changed. Understand how memories of the past can also help us peer into the future. And explore the bumpy road even a youthful mind sometimes travels when experiencing déjà vu, succumbing to suggestibility, or having a "senior" moment. This program is part of The Big, the Small, and the Complex Series, a Series exploring the latest developments in Astrophysics, Nanoscience, and Neuroscience, fields recognized by the Kavli Prize.
