Reconsolidation + Q&A with Dr. Schiller & Director Liron Unreich
We are excited to screen our sold out audience favorite of the 2016 festival and winner of our Scientific Merit and Scientist Award back to Imagine. We are in for a treat as both Dr. Daniela Schiller and Director Liron Unreich will be joining us for a Q&A following the film!
Recalling a memory may trigger a process called reconsolidation, whereby memories return to an unstable state in the brain, allowing to incorporate new information and update memories. Dr. Schillers research attempts to identify and utilize memory updating through reconsolidation to reduce the impact of negative memories, and diminish maladaptive emotional reactions in response to memory.
