The Mystery of Memory:
In Search of the Past
Moderated by Steve Paulson
Executive Producer, Wisconsin Public Radio's nationally-syndicated program To the Best of Our Knowledge.
The universal fascination with how we remember, forget, and create false memories cuts across the arts and sciences, as the question of how and where memories are formed and preserved becomes increasingly critical.
Psychologist Daniel Schacter, neuroscientist Joseph LeDoux, historian of science and medicine Alison Winter, and novelist and comparative literature professor André Aciman join forces to discuss how memory impacts our perception of ourselves, the development of personality, and the ability to construct and reconstruct our past experience.
