Course Highlights

This course explores memory retention and localization throughout the life of an individual. The student is expected to recruit subjects, understand some of their history, and produce stimuli that elicit long-term memories of the particular subject. Additionally, students are expected to scan the subjects in a functional magnetic resonance imager (fMRI).

Course Description

This course is an investigation to distinguish episodic memory, which is memory of personal events, from semantic memory, which is general knowledge independent of time and place.
