Remembering: Bridging Biology and Culture

Remembering was the title of Sir Frederick Bartlett’s pioneering book, which presented the theory of schemata. By letting his participant’s read a story from a cultural context very different from their own and subsequently asking them to remember it, they changed the details according to their cognitive schemata.

In this year’s CFIN/MindLab Retreat, we focus on memory as a process. We examine the context-sensitivity of remembering from biological and cultural angles and in normal and clinical populations. We approach this subject broadly and zoom in on various processes, which come together each time we remember, and which can be initiated spontaneously as well as deliberately. These are processes related to neuro-connectivity, brain-patterns, resting state, mind wandering, episodic future thought, mental time travel, self, development, cross-cultural and historical factors. We look forward to exploring the interplay between biology and culture with you.
