"The Cognitive Neuroscience of Recent and Remote Event and Spatial Memory"
Memories are dynamic and interactive. Their representations are influenced by time and experience. I will present evidence on the nature of the changing representations and their neural correlates, show how event and spatial memory interact with one another, and propose a neurocognitive model of hippocampal-neocortical interactions that may account for the evidence.
