Human memory project

Project Leader: HOSHINO, Yuji (College of Comprehensive Psychology Professor )span: 2011/04 -

What do people remember? What do people think can be remembered? We have investigated these questions using experimental methods. For example, people who are tested for memory for images that were presented show a tendency of choosing images that differ slightly from original images. You may remember the exact temporal order, even if you do not intend to remember the order of events. Or you have forgotten something immediately after they occur. Also, when you forget something previously seen or heard, you can choose what might be close to what you experienced. And, in fact, you might not experience what you think is remembered. We suppose that understanding our memory and cognitive processes, which bring on learning and intellect, lead to alleviation of psychological matters.
