Conference in Liege on cognitive neuroscience of memory

From October 3, 2019 to October 4, 2019

Auditoire Léon Frédéricq, University of Liege

The conference « Cognitive neuroscience of memory: Recollection, familiarity and novelty detection » proposes a state-of-the-art overview by renowned experts in the study of memory. The talks will present recent advances brought by the main methodological approaches: cognitive psychology, neuropsychology and neuroimaging (functional MRI, ERPs, intracranial recording).

Studies on brain-damaged patients and neuroimaging studies have identified key brain regions for memory functioning and try to understand the role of these regions. Thanks to recent technological progress in the appraisal of brain-behaviour relationship (e.g., intracranial neuronal recording, high-resolution MRI), our understanding of memory functioning is more and more refined. Yet, numerous questions remain.
