ASTD 2014 International Conference and Exposition

This past May I had the pleasure of speaking at the ASTD (American Society for Training & Development) 2014 International Conference and Exposition in D.C. I had a great time speaking at my session and interacting with the attendees – lots of great memories were formed! Here’s my video promoting the session. I’m looking forward […]

What is electroencephalography (EEG)?

What is electroencephalography (EEG)?

Throughout my MA and PhD research, I used electroencephalography (EEG) to investigate how we form memories. When I share my research findings with people outside my specific field of research, I’m often asked the following question: what is EEG? If you’re also looking for an answer to this question, I hope you find my video helpful!

What can we do to retain information better? (Spacing Effect)

What can we do to retain information better? (Spacing Effect)

Whether I’m visiting with family and friends or out speaking about my research, people often ask me what they can do to improve their memory. In this video I share information about something we can all do to improve our memory, and it is related to something called the spacing effect.

What are learning styles?

What are learning styles?

I really enjoy giving science talks to the general public. I always feel re-energized by the enthusiasm and excitement that the audience gives off, as well as their questions! Most of the time, my talks are about memory and what we can do to improve our memory, and every so often someone asks me about the implications of learning styles. Check out my typical response in this video!
