Virtual CNLM Spring Conference
Memories are the record of our experiences, but they also shape them. We now know that memory recall is a fundamentally constructive process, reassembling multiple views of past experience to interpret the present and imagine the future. The three symposia for this year’s Learning and Memory meeting will examine recent and ongoing research building this new, dynamic, multi-scale understanding of memory.
