how memory can in turn guide our attention, perception, and goal-directed behavior.

Congrats to Manasi and Chinmayi for their 4-experiment paper on how attentional fluctuations influence (or don't influence!) the temporal organization of memory. The results will shock you! You can find the paper on our Publications page.
How do we balance paying attention to the external world around us vs. our internal thoughts and memories? Congratulations to Craig for his preprint investigating how hippocampal networks switch between these modes. Check out his preprint on our Publications page!
Congratulations to Paul, whose Registered Report was just accepted at Memory! This study investigated the effects of music on autobiographical memory retrieval – check it out on our Publications page!
We like to do good science and have fun. At the same time, but also separately.
