Although people often conceive of memory as something static and unchanging, like an old photograph, our memories constantly change because of subsequent experience and learning. Some of these effects result in interference and a reduced ability to retrieve memories, but some can improve memory retrieval, such as studying information again before a test. The research in our lab employs behavioral studies, neuroimaging (EEG and fMRI), machine learning, and computational modeling to explore how memory is dynamically strengthened, altered, and integrated, as well as the brain structures that support these processes.
