Charan Ranganath, director of the UC Davis Memory and Plasticity Program and professor of psychology, on Jan. 18 will be talking about the cutting-edge of human memory research.
Recent discoveries in neuroscience have revealed significant insights into how people remember and how to remember better. Evidence shows that the very act of remembering can sometimes help retain information with important discoveries about why this happens. Research also shows the surprising ways that motivation and curiosity can influence memory.
The program will begin at 6pm, with refreshments and no-host bar from 5:30-6pm at TERC on the campus of Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village.
Pre-registration is encouraged. A $5 suggested donation will be collected at the door.
