PBS NOVA: MEMORY HACKERS

FMSF News Alert - February 3, 2016

February 10, 2016

9:00 p.m. (Check your local listing.)


Dear Friends,

This one-hour documentary will examine how science has expanded our understanding of memory. It examines:

  • How memories are formed,
  • What encompasses the act of remembering, and
  • New technologies being used to implant, edit and erase memories.

Of particular interest to FMSF members will be the segment featuring experimental psychologist Julia Shaw who has been able to convince 70 percent of the participants in her studies that they have committed a crime that did not happen.

The program also features the work of Dr. Henry Roediger, a distinguished member of our FMSF scientific advisory board.
