Much of what we know about the forms and functions of memory comes from research with individuals who have become amnesic as a result of brain damage. Such work has not only elucidated the brain structures critical for establishing memories, but has also yielded fascinating insights about how memory shapes behavior outside of our awareness, and how memory enables us to envision the future.


Margaret Keane is Professor of Psychology at Wellesley College and Associate Director of the Memory Disorders Research Center at the VA Boston Healthcare System and Boston University School of Medicine.
