EPS January 2019 meeting programme

Research Workshop: Memory malleability over time. To be held at University of Kent. 10-11 January 2019

Traditional research into the neurocognitive mechanisms that underlie long-term memory has typically focused on how we encode information from a single exposure into memories that are then retrieved once in a test phase. Through these type of paradigms, we have learned a lot about the brain mechanisms that underlie memory for unique experiences. However, in real life, very similar experiences are often encoded multiple times, and memories are often retrieved/reactivated repeatedly. Recent evidence suggests that repeated encoding and retrieval can change memories in different ways. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers who investigate long-term memory malleability over time from different theoretical angles and using different cognitive neuroscience methodologies.

Research Workshop: The psychology of upper-limb prosthetic use. To be held at Manchester Metropolitan University. 19 March 2019

The human hand is remarkable, and the loss of an upper limb represents a huge challenge for one’s sensorimotor system. To address this challenge, we will bring together psychologists, prosthetists, bioengineers, and prosthetic-users to present and discuss work which furthers our understanding of the psychology of upper limb prosthetic use.

This day-long workshop will take place on the 19th of March 2019 at Manchester Metropolitan University, immediately prior to Trent International Prosthetics Symposium which is being held in the same city.

Further details, including registration and abstract submission, can be found here:  https://prostheticsworkshop.wixsite.com/event

Organisers: Gavin Buckingham, Sam Vine and Greg Wood
