The ability to store memories for experiences and then use them to inform decisions is one of the most remarkable abilities of the brain. These memories are central to our identities; in a very real sense our personality and the sum total of our experiences define who we are and how we interact with our world. In this talk he will introduce the brain areas that are critical for making and retrieving memories. He will also discuss recent results that has given us new insights into how memories are stored, how these memories are then retrieved and how they can be used to guide decisions.
