In January, Kentucky’s PBS affiliate, KET, will air a 90-minute Grawemeyer Award in Psychology event, “Mysteries of Human Memory.” The panel discussion, held at the Kentucky Center for the Arts as part of the fall 2015 Grawemeyer Awards 30th Anniversary Celebration, features former Grawemeyer Award in Psychology winners and prominent memory experts Elizabeth Loftus, James McGaugh and Lynn Nadel. The discussion is followed by a question-and-answer session moderated by Keith Lyle, a University of Louisville associate professor of psychological and brain sciences.
Some of the topics covered include: eyewitness testimony and the fallibility of memory, emotion and memory, highly superior autobiographical memory, place memory, and the process of memory consolidation and reconsolidation.
