Welcome to Understanding Memory. Someone once said that memory is fascinating because sometimes we forget what we want to remember, sometimes we remember what we want to forget, and sometimes we remember events that never happened or never happened the way we remember them. I want to show you how memory works, why it sometimes fails, and what we can do to enhance it. Based on my recent book – Memory and Movies: What Films Can Teach Us About Memory (MIT Press, 2015) – I will provide an introduction to the scientific study of human memory by focusing on a select group of topics that hold widespread appeal.

Very easy to understand and every week's video and quiz is very manageable too! Thumbs up. An interesting course to learn more about the basics of memory and cognitive functions.
This is a throughly enjoyable experience. Information was presented in a manner that made it easy to understand and the film clips accurately expressed what was being presented in the lecture.
I found the course very interesting & was fascinated to learn how memory works. As I'm 86 years old it gives me hope that I can keep my hippocampus functioning.\n\nThank you.
This course wonderfully explains the different aspects of memory through the movies which is one of a kind. And also talks efficiently about ways to decline memory problems. In-depth overview.
