Published DateLACONIA — Dr. Angela Kilb of Plymouth State University will discuss memory research Friday, Feb. 8 at 11 a.m. in Taylor Community's Woodside Building.
We've all experienced forgetting in our lives and have observed that human memory is imperfect. Yet, certain memories remain vivid for many years. However, the vivid memories we confidently
remember may disagree with those of a sibling or spouse.
Doctor Kilb will show how easy it is to implant a false memory, as well as the implications this has on
everyday life, including the impact of false memories on eyewitness testimony. She received her PhD in Cognition and Neuroscience from the University of Missouri, where she studied the effects of aging and divided attention on memory performance. She is currently an assistant professor at PSU and the director of the Lifetime Learning Laboratory.
The program is part of collaboration between Meredith Village Savings Bank, Taylor Community and
Plymouth State University, designed to bring educational and entertaining programs to Taylor residents and the greater Lakes Region area.
The event is free and open to the public. Space is limited. Make reservations by calling 524-5600.
