How does brain injury or disease impact the functions of memory? What are the affects of daily and acute stress on memory? Can eye movements tell us about what will be remembered?
The Human Memory Lab attempts to answer these questions among others. Under the direction of Dr. Andrew Yonelinas, our primary goal is to understand how memory works, and why it often fails. Through patient and healthy populations, our research examines many factors that influence memory such as stress, aging, and injury.
