Soap Box: The Science of Remembering (and Forgetting)

How Does Stress Drive PTSD? with Ki Goosens

Thursday, November 14, 2013

6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Memories formed while anxious have been shown to influence occurences of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). How does fear and anxiety affect our perception of the world, and subsequent memories? Join in a discussion with Ki Goosens, MIT Assistant Professor of Neuroscience in the McGovern Institute for Brain Research, about her recent research on these topics and more in our evening discussion series.

This is the last of a three-part discussion series on memories. Soap Box is a series of interactive, salon-style, early evening conversations with scientists and engineers who are making the news that really matters.

Free admission.
