Joseph Dunsmoor, University of Texas at Austin: "Episodic Memory and Pavlovian Conditioning: Ships Passing in the Dark"


Presentation
Joseph Dunsmoor's research centers on how emotion and cognition interact to determine how we learn about and remember important events. This research integrates a number of psychological and neuroscience disciplines, including Pavlovian conditioning, categorization, decision making, and episodic memory. He has published his findings in high tier journals such as Nature and Neuron. Lately, he wants to understand whether it is possible to change or eliminate episodic memories of threatening experiences.
