19th November 2008, 19:00 to 20:00, The Scotswood Suite, Centre for Life, Newcastle

Our memories define who we are and aid most of our daily tasks, and yet how memory works remains a mystery. Professor Burgess from the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College, London will outline some recent work that has used video games, neuro-imaging and computer simulations to suggests how the brain enables you to imagine where things were and what happened there.
