The Illusion of Memory: It's Not What You Think It Is
Mark Twain once said, "I am an old man and I have known a great number of misfortunes, but most of them never happened." Indeed, current research about memory reveals that when we observe and recall past memories, we change them in the process. How does that affect us? How does it affect our criminal justice system and eye-witness observations? What types of memory do not change with time? What about body or cellular memory, and is that any different? Learn the answers to these questions and more as we explore memory in this fascinating discussion with Craig Weiner, DC. Funded by the Friends of the Langley Library.
