Science in a Bar! SciBar aims to bring interesting, topical areas of science to the general public. Each event will consist of a short talk by a scientist, followed by a lively discussion about the topic and any surrounding issues.

The Talk: How do you know whether your memories are real, or only a figment of your imagination? False memories are surprisingly common in all of us. This talk will take the audience through a journey on how memories are formed, and how the nature of memories can lead onto the creation of false recollections. Real life implications such as how research on false memories have impacted eyewitness testimonials will also be discussed.

About the speaker: Marie Buda is currently finishing her PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Cambridge. She is part of the Simons Memory Lab and researches the neuroscience behind when we make decisions as to whether our memories were real or only imagined.

This talk is part of the SciBar series.
