On 29 October at 17:00 the lecture “Memory and Learning: How It Works” will be given by Asya Kazantseva at the Blokhintsev Universal Library with support from DLNP.

A popular science journalist Asya Kazantseva will speak about the latest achievements in neurobiology and experimental psychology. What allows memorizing more information? Is it possible to get rid of fears? Why is the seashell an ideal object for studying memory mechanisms?

In the past decades, neurobiologists have seriously advanced in understanding processes that occur in the brain as one learns new information. They can already rewrite memories in the experiments on rats and dim emotions of the past in volunteers. At what moment can people recall everything and is it necessary? What techniques are even now able to improve preparation for seminars, lectures, and exams?
