Brain mechanisms underlying the subjective experience of remembering – Dr Jon Simons, Reader in Cognitive Neuroscience, Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge

October 6, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Remembering personally experienced events involves reactivating sensory and perceptual event features, and the thoughts and feelings we had when the event occurred, and integrating them into a conscious experience during retrieval. It makes possible a number of decision making abilities, such as distinguishing events that actually occurred from those we might have imagined or been told about. Although a great deal is known about the cognitive and neural processes that enable us to recall a word list, for example, considerably less is known about the processes underlying the subjective experience of remembering. In this talk, I will consider evidence from functional neuroimaging and patient lesion studies addressing the contribution of different brain regions to the subjective experience of remembering.
