"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.

CTN Research Day Sept 27 15:00-17:30 DWE 3516

The Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience will be hosting its first Research Day. This will be a chance to start the new academic year by getting re-acquainted with each other and the diversity of research conducted by CTN core and affiliate faculty. The format will be to have a number of CTN faculty share short overviews of their lab's and projects (15:00-16:00) and then, following a short coffee break (16:00-16:30), hear from a dozen current graduate students and post-docs giving short three minute talks on an aspect of their current research (16:30-17:30).

The Meaning of Life

Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience founding member Paul Thagard has contributed a chapter on The Relevance of Neuroscience to Meaning in Life for The Oxford Handbook of Meaning in Life. You can find it, and more, at Prof. Thagard's website (pdf).
