It is well known that stressful experience can shape memories. For instance, emotional experiences are usually better remembered and at the same time during a stressful experience people tend to have a selective focus, leading to specific but not always accurate memories. How this can be and which factors are important in this relation will be discussed and explained by experts in the field. We will invite people working in Psychiatry, Psychology and Neurobiology.
Apart from interesting lectures we will also have an interactive part of the symposium during which we will need your active participation in a small experiment.
We hope that it will be a memorable and stress-free symposium.
