January Science Cafe - Jamie Hale and "Exploring Memory"

Join us for January Science Cafe featuring Jamie Hale and his talk "Exploring Memory". We've been on an unexpected hiatus, and we MISS YOU GUYS!!

The Schedule

Arrive any time after 6:30. Eat and chat between 7:00 and 8:00. The presentation will begin at 8:00.

You are welcome to come just for the presentation, but if you intend to eat, please arrive and place your order by 7:10. After the presentation we will draw names for door prizes. As always, we will pass the collection box at the end of the meeting to collect $2 per person to cover expenses.

The Presentation

"Exploring Memory"

A general overview of the biological underpinnings and behavioral aspects of memory will be discussed in the Exploring Memory lecture. Some of the topics to be covered will include: explicit and implicit memory, memory myths, tips to enhance memory, components of working memory, protein synthesis and memory, and much more.

The Guest Speaker

Jamie Hale, M.S., is an experimental researcher specializing in behavioral nutrition and cognitive science.  He is associated with the Perception & Cognition Lab and the Psychophysiology Lab at Eastern Kentucky University. He has authored six books and contributed to various national and international publications. He is currently working on his seventh book- In Evidence We Trust: The need for science, rationality and statistics.

The Venue

We will be UPSTAIRS on the second floor in Patrick O'Shea's Loft 123. Patrick O'Shea's is downtown on Main St., on historic Whiskey Row, between 1st and 2nd. It is a block from the Yum! Center, and three doors down from Bearno's by the Bridge.

There is $5 parking in a lot on the corner of 2nd and Main, and at the Marriott garage. Your best bet may be street parking, which is free after 6 pm.

See you there!

    Jamie did a great job taking his long presentation and shortening it for this lay audience. I really appreciated discussions about certain experiments (like those done with HM) and how they have allowed us to learn more about how memories are formed and retained.
