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.
