Memories are our records of experiences and, in the moment, they are the contents of our thoughts. Dr. Johnson will present rare insights into memory function from data recorded in real-time from humans undergoing open brain surgery or who have chronic brain damage. Together, these data reveal the complex web of neural processes that underlie memories.
