Our memories are key to our identity; they shape everything we are. Memories can also be fleeting, confusing, or crystal clear yet wrong. In this session, you will learn about what it takes to lay a memory, what can be done to strengthen memories, and how we could alter or even erase memories.
Serge Onyper is a psychologist who studies the mind, in particular how we humans learn and remember. He is particularly interested in the ways to strengthen memories and in the reasons behind forgetting. Serge has been teaching at St. Lawrence University since 2007.
