The New Theory of Human Memory

Arnold Glass (Psychology)

In this century, there has been a revolution in our understanding of what human memory is and of the neural basis for human memory. We will analyze five classic experiments that transformed the description of memory from a passive recording device to an active system that is constantly being transformed by new information. These include an experiment that reveals a surprising discontinuity between faces that are recognized and faces that are not recognized and an experiment demonstrating how easy it is to induce false memories
