This program looks at the various areas that brain researchers are now exploring: What kind of brain chemistry can explain memory? If long-term memory is a kind of permanent pattern on the fabric of the mind, what structural changes occur in the brain? Are different types of memory located in different areas of the brain? Are specific memories stored in separate places? What is the process of forgetting? Is it possible to improve memory? The program seeks answers to these and other fascinating questions about the brain and memory at several internationally renowned memory research labs. Gary Lynch's team believes it has found the basic mechanism of memory formation; James McGaugh's that emotional states affect the ability to store and recall information; Richard Thompson has located and experimentally proved the specific location of a procedural memory; John Hopfield is developing a computer to simulate brain activity. The program also demonstrates prodigious feats of memory and the advice of a memory teacher
