Join us for a talk by Morris Moscovitch of the University of Toronto.

"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.
