This talk will provide a brief overview of memory systems, introducing central characteristics of different types of memory. A focus will be on episodic memory (memory for events) and how the episodic memory system differs, both functionally and neurobiologically, from other memory systems. The goal is to ground participants in key facts about memory, setting the stage for the day’s discussions about memory and law.
