Memory Malleability Over Time
Kent Memory Workshop

The workshop begins at 13.15 on Day 1 and ends at 16.00 on Day 2.

Traditional research into the neurocognitive mechanisms that underlie long-term memory has typically focused on how we encode information from a single exposure into memories that are then retrieved once in a test phase. Through these type of paradigms, we have learned a lot about the brain mechanisms that underlie memory for unique experiences. However, in real life, very similar experiences are often encoded multiple times, and memories are often retrieved/reactivated repeatedly. Recent evidence suggests that repeated encoding and retrieval can change memories in different ways. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers who investigate long-term memory malleability over time from different theoretical angles and using different cognitive neuroscience methodologies. The format will provide a valuable opportunity to meet peers in your field of study in an informal, friendly and stimulating setting.

This workshop is free due to the generous support by the Experimental Psychology Society, which includes a free lunch on the Friday and coffee and other refreshments during the breaks on both days. Furthermore, postgraduate students can apply for one of our student travel bursaries that will provide £150 towards travel and accommodation costs.

All attendees have the option of presenting a poster and can indicate this at registration. If you wish, you can also opt to be considered for a Datablitz session, which will consist of a series of short talks. As we only have space for a smaller number of these talks, there will be a selection stage and you will be informed whether your Datablitz submission has been accepted in mid-December.

There are 60 spaces available for this workshop, and registration via our website is required (see link above). Spaces are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Please also visit the website for information on speakers, schedule and to submit your poster/datablitz abstracts.
