Our speakers are Dr. Dendy Sloan and Dr. Cynthia Norrgran, coauthors of Neuroscience, Memory, and Learning, and their much-anticipated joint presentation is entitled Three Minds and Memory.
Drs. Sloan and Norrgran will briefly discuss functions of the three brain portions each of us have: reptilian, Paleomammilian (animal), and neocortical (human). Connecting those three parts to simple memory types (short-term, working, and long-term) will be done next. The talk will conclude with a working example and a list for those who wish to read further.
