“Organization as a Window into Memory”

Our memories do not exist in isolation. How we organize our memories -- whether we group experiences by when they occurred or some shared meaning -- elucidates how our memories are associated with one another. Here, I propose that organizational mechanisms are at the core of our ability to successfully form memories. In this talk, I will present evidence from fMRI, scalp EEG, and intracranial EEG studies showing that the neural mechanisms which support successful encoding reflect organizational processes. I will then show that different forms of organization interfere with one another. Finally, I will present evidence showing that task goals modulate these organizational signals and subsequent memory performance. Together, this work reveals that our ability to successfully encode memories depends on adaptively engaging specific modes of organization.
