Juggling memories in time and spaceMemories 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.
Lisa Johnson Dr. Johnson studies how this organ in our heads can make us so smart and so human, with emphasis on memory. She holds degrees in Cognitive Neuroscience (UC Berkeley) and Psychology (University of Chicago).
