Abstract

© 2007 by Henry L. Roediger III, Yadin Dudai, and Susan M. Fitzpatrick. All rights reserved. This part presents four chapters on the concept of forgetting. The first chapter analyzes the term "forgetting". The second discusses the impact of misinformation on the ability to remember previous event details. The third considers whether forgetting is a useful concept in the science of memory. It argues that it is not an especially useful in terms of what it denotes, but that what it connotes needs to be kept. The fourth presents a synthesis of the chapters in this part.

My main research interest has been in long-term memory, especially for complex (or "real-world") stimuli. This work includes the study of autobiographical memory and oral traditions, as well as prose. I have also studied memory as it is more commonly done in experimental psychology laboratories using lists. In addition to this purely behavioral research, which I plan to continue, I work on memory in clinical populations with the aid of a National Institute of Mental Health grant to study PTSD and on the underlying neural basis of memory the aid of a National Institute of Aging grant to study autobiographical memory using fMRI.
