Memory Illusions and How to Avoid Them – Presented by Professor Robert Logie

Can we improve our memory? Do smartphones make us smarter? Take part in interactive demonstrations on human memory including when it works, when it doesn’t and how to make it work better.

Public Lecture. Saturday, March 9, 10:30 a.m. Columbia, Missouri

What happens when scientists who disagree work together? The case of human memory and aging

How does memory work? How and when does memory not work, and why? How you might improve memory, and why is forgetting a very good thing (but letting your smartphone do your thinking for you is a bad idea)? Dr. Logie will discuss these questions and show how exciting new ideas about memory can arise from working with scientists in Columbia, MO, and in Switzerland who disagree with him and with one another about how human memory works.

The lecture will be given at the Monsanto Auditorium, Bond Life Sciences Center
