Making Memories

Brain Dialogues – Meeting of Different Minds cycle

Event Slider

The brain’s ability to create imaginary worlds where we can evoke our autobiographical memories and simulate future actions allows us to travel through time and create narratives that give us our identity. This fictional capacity of our brain has enabled virtual narratives to evolve out of literature, theatre and cinema. At the fourth conference of “Brain Dialogues”, scientist Nicky Clayton, who researches episodic memory in animals, talks with writer Ana Cristina Silva.
