Exploring sleep's impact on memory with targeted memory reactivation
Co-sponsored with NUIN
Dr. Shah investigates spatial thinking and working memory.
Dr. McRae investigates the internal structure of concepts, how they are organized in the mind and brain, and how people’s knowledge of concepts breaks down due to brain damage.
Professor Daniel Simons (University of Illinois) will discuss how these reasoning errors have led to a reproducibility 'crisis' and how improved scientific practices can better filter the signal from the noise. His talk will be followed by a panel discussion among Prof. Simons and three Northwestern faculty: Jennifer Tackett, Blake McShane, and Eli Finkel.
