Human Memory and Cognition Laboratory

"Stop Forgetting" PosterThe Human Memory and Cognition Lab uses empirical, computational, and developmental approaches to understand how memory works in humans. As the principal investigator, Aaron S. Benjamin, puts it, “The goal of our research is to understand memory use in the larger context of skilled performanceby specifying a minimal set of operations that operate in service of translating experience into memory, and vice-versa, and then exploring the flexibility of how these basic operations are used by the cognitive system as a whole.” This is explored in the subtopics of memory skill, recognition, metacognition and memory, aging and memory, language and memory, and reminding.

Our principal investigator is Dr. Aaron S. Benjamin.
