Humans possess the extraordinary capacity to mentally travel back and forth in subjective time. This allows us to relive personally defining events from our past and to mentally project ourselves forwards in time to envisage the future. The relative ease with which we engage in these feats of mental time travel belies their inherent complexity.
Join Professor Muireann Irish as she presents an overview of her work exploring memory and imagination and how these processes break down in dementia. Professor Irish will highlight how damage to the brain impacts these sophisticated cognitive processes and the devastating effects of losing such uniquely human functions.
