What We Remember. What to Forget.

Join Catalyst Conversations for a conversation about memory and forgetting with scientist, John Gabrieli, and writer, poet, and cultural critic, Lewis Hyde.  Memory is a major focus for Gabrieli.  His lab employs neuroimaging to study the brain structure and function of people with neuropsychiatric challenges such as anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia.  Hyde’s latest book, A Primer for Forgetting: Getting Past the Past explores the many situations in which forgetfulness is more useful than memory—in myth, personal psychology, politics, art & spiritual life.
