"Episodic memory encoding and retrieval: a cognitive neuroscience perspective"
*** NOTE CHANGE IN TIME ***
Encoding and retrieval are often treated as if they are independent memory functions. Evidence from experimental psychology, however, suggests that they are interdependent. This evidence fits well with current ideas about the neurobiological basis of episodic memory, and the two frameworks come together to make predictions about the relationship between encoding- and retrieval-related neural activity that can be tested in humans using functional neuroimaging. The talk will describe recent studies motivated by these predictions, and will argue that encoding and retrieval are interdependent at both the psychological and the neural level.
