Join Daniel Reisberg, Patricia & Clifford Lunneborg Professor of Psychology at Reed College, in an exploration of the slippery and surprising nature of memory.

You rely on your memory in virtually every aspect of your life. In this engrossing audio series, cognitive psychology professor Daniel Reisberg shares modern scientific research on the function and failures of memory. You’ll cover theoretical points, delving into the biology of memory and memory disorders, as well as gain practical information that can help you improve your memory.

In 15 eye-opening lectures, you’ll learn the answers to questions such as:

  • What makes memory unreliable and malleable?
  • Can we “remember” things that never really happened?
  • Why do two people sometimes remember a shared experience differently?
  • Is memory a “use it or lose it” function?

A consultant and expert witness on eyewitness testimony in judicial proceedings, Professor Reisberg shares his real-world experience of how incorrect or incomplete memories can lead to false convictions.

You’ll also learn how to optimize your own memory, as well as how to recognize and cope with potential signs of me

    Great course this one! We (for good or ill) live in a psychotic culture that worships all sorts of “victims” of this, that and the other thing who, perhaps years or decades later, point fingers at culprits. This course gives one the facts to demystify human memory. The landscape portrait is chilling to say the least. Research shows how one in three witnesses in police identification procedures pick the “wrong” person in the lineup, that is someone the police is sure had nothing to do with the crime. Emotions prevailing at the moment one retrieves memories have an impact that can generate “tunnel vision” and “reconstruct” memories.
