Research in Memory

Posted on August 6, 2008 at 11:36am 5 Comments

I've had a few questions from people here about the research I do in a lab I work for at my university, which I briefly describe in my profile so I thought I'd describe it in more detail here.



I work in a lab that is interested in memory and attention and the mechanisms of executive control (which essentially refers to how attention is directed).



Our lab has looked at how retrieving an item from memory can impair memory for related items which causes long term forgetting.… Continue

Why I'm an Atheist

I was raised in a household by fairly open minded Christian parents who went to church in childhood but never took me to church. We celebrate Christmas and Easter as a family but otherwise religion was rarely discussed in detail in my home.

Greetings, Rea! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home. We'd be glad for you to share your story of why you're an atheist.

Nice write-up on why you are an atheist. I need to do one of those.

Happy 24th trip around the sun!

thought there would be more Oregonians on here. I am from Salem and there was only one person other than my wife on here from Salem. Only a year old site and I just found out about it though. Your research is interesting, I hope you are able to help people understand how to better utilize their memory, cool.

Heya Rea, thanks for the add. Unfortunately open positions seem to be quite scarce at my uni. But hey, I know a few people now in the various fields that I'm interested in, so hopefully something will come up soon.

Rea, you might like some of the discussions going on at www.createcognitivedissonance.wordpress.com - my blog.

Interesting work you're doing in neuroscience. Are you a Dennett fan?
