Virtual Wednesday Nite @ The Lab
"Forgetting: What it is and Why it Helps Us Remember" Haley Vlach, Educational Psychology
Wednesday, August 25, 2021
This talk will provide an overview of a critical process of human memory: forgetting. I will explain what forgetting is, why we study forgetting, and what scientists have discovered from the science of forgetting. While most of us see forgetting as a process that impairs our ability to remember, research has revealed that forgetting is one of our most powerful learning mechanisms. That is, forgetting is a good thing!
