Ben Yakov Lab

The building blocks of episodic memory

How is real-life experience transformed into discrete memories, and how are those memories stored and retrieved? We aim to answer these questions using a range of naturalistic stimuli (movies, stopmotion and animation), combining behavioral and brain imaging methods to illuminate the underpinnings of memory formation and organization in healthy individuals.
