"Constructive Memory and Imagining the Future"
Professor Schacter is a Psychology Professor at Harvard University. He is the principal investigator of the Cognitive Neuroscience lab at Harvard. Professor Schacter's research explores the relation between conscious and unconscious forms of memory, the nature of memory distortions, how individuals use memory to imagine possible future events, enhancement of online learning, as well as the effects of aging on memory. I was working with Professor Schacter as a research assistant on one of his projects on memory and future thinking: an area of cognitive science that he has pioneered. Since a lot of Professor Schacter's recent projects have been looking at 'memory' in a very novel way from what we know and learn from textbook, having him as a speak will not only broaden our understanding on human cognition, but also teach us a systematic way of conducting a scientific study.
