Over the last thirty years, significant progress has been made in our
understanding of the various types of memory, the neural processes of
consolidation and reconsolidation, and the biochemistry of memory, as well
as the malleability and limits of autobiographical memory. How might
continued research help us identify the importance of memory in normal
development, in terms of how our experience and recollection of it guides
and affects our lives? What research directions are in development in the
fight against memory impairment, an increasing concern for our long-living
population? And what can memory researchers and scholars and practitioners
of the art of memory learn from one another?

Professor in the Center for Neural Science, New York University. She has
been studying the biological mechanisms of long-term memory for the last 20
years. Her studies explore the biological mechanisms of memory
consolidation and reconsolidation, the processes by which newly learned
information become long-lasting memories, and how memories are modulated
and integrated into complex behavioral manifestations. Her studies also aim
at utilizing the basic understandings of the mechanisms of memory formation
to enhance memories and prevent forgetting, or disrupt pathogenic memories.
Both approaches have important translational applications.

She graduated from the University of Pavia in Italy with Honors and
obtained a Doctorate in Research in Immunological Sciences from the
University of Genoa in Italy. She trained as a post-doctoral fellow at
Columbia University, studying the role of gene expression regulation during
long-term synaptic plasticity consolidation in *Aplysia californica*. From
1997 to 2000, she served on the Faculty of Brown University before joining
Mount Sinai in 2001 where she worked until 2011. In 2011 she joined the
Center for Neural Science at NYU. She has received several awards including
Hirschl-Weill Career Scientist Award, NARSAD Independent Investigator
Award, McKnight Memory and Cognitive Disorder Award, Mount Sinai Dean’s
Award for Excellence in Basic Science Research, Paul Harris Fellow -Rotary
Club Cremona and NIMH-MERIT award.

Since 2004 she has been a member of the Council of the Molecular and
Cellular Cognition Society (MCCS); she served as the society’s Treasurer
from 2006 to 2009 and then as President from 2009 to 2012.
Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Irvine. After
obtaining his doctorate in philosophy from Stanford University, he held
research positions at the University of Munich, Birkbeck College London,
the University of Manchester, and the University of Vienna. He is a
recipient of a Humboldt Research Award, a Member of the Board of Directors
of the American Philosophical Association, and Director of the Southern
California Epistemology Network. His work is mainly in epistemology,
philosophy of mind, metaphysics, Kant and German Idealism. He has published
numerous articles in these areas and is the author of three books — *Reading
Epistemology* (2006), *The Metaphysics of Memory* (2008), and *Memory: A
Philosophical Study* (2010). Currently he is editing a Handbook of the
Philosophy of Memory and working on a monograph on the metaphysical
foundations of knowledge.

the Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science at New
York University, where he is also a Professor of Neural Science. Tom
trained with Eric Kandel, a pioneer in the field of memory research. Tom is
an elected fellow of both AAAS and the American Academy of Arts and
Sciences, and served as President of the Society for Neuroscience. His
research interests center on cellular and molecular mechanisms of memory.

Professor of Cognitive Psychology, head of the psychology department at
City University London. He has been studying human memory for more than
thirty years. He is known for his pioneering theoretical work on
autobiographical memory, as well as for his studies of the neuropsychology
of memory and memory’s neurological basis. His research also includes
memory impairment and enhancement, and he has recently explored the links
between the ability of humans to remember past events and imagine future
ones. A graduate of University College London, Dr. Conway earned a Ph.D. in
psychology at Open University in 1984. He worked as post-doctoral research
scientist in the Medical Research Council’s Applied Psychology Unit in
Cambridge (UK) was later appointed lecturer in psychology at the University
of Lancaster. He subsequently became professor and Chair of Psychology at
the University of Bristol, Durham University, and the University of Leeds.
A fellow of the Royal College of Arts, the British Psychological Society,
the (UK) Academy of Social Sciences, the Psychonomic Society, and the
American Psychological Association, he was awarded an honorary degree
(Ph.D.) from the Université de Liège. He has been active in providing
accessible accounts of research on memory to the public through radio and
television, and has been involved in a variety of collaborations with
artists that focus on memory. Dr. Conway has been an advisor in many legal
cases and written extensively on memory and the law.

a neuroscientist at the University of Manchester, where she runs the
Neuroscience and Psychology of Sleep (NaPS) lab. Her research specifically
investigates the role of sleep in strengthening and altering memories – and
ways we can use this to our advantage. She is the author of The Secret
World of Sleep, which has sold >10K copies and been translated into
Japanese and Chinese. She recently gave a TEDx talk on sleep engineering
which was viewed ~10K x in the first two months online. She has
also written for popular science publications, including New Scientist,
Scientific American, and BBC Focus, and was interviewed on NPR’s “Fresh
Air”. Her research has been featured on the BBC, and she’s received
funding from top institutes, including a number of UK research councils as
well as the Wellcome Trust and Unilever.
