Soap Box

Soap Box is an interactive series in which participants of all backgrounds converse with top MIT scientists or engineers in an informal cafe-style setting at the MIT Museum. Begun in 2005, Soap Box is the premier public forum for discussing new technological and scientific developments at MIT.

Soap Box: The Science of Remembering (and Forgetting)

How are memories formed and lost? Are memories concrete or are they constantly changing? Join MIT neuroscientists in conversations about the nature of memory to answer these questions and more in an interactive discussion between speaker and audience. Come with questions, share your thoughts, and leave with new knowledge and understanding.
