Autobiographical Memory and the Self

Catherine Loveday
(Principal Lecturer in Psychology, University of Westminster)

Autobiographical memory plays a profound part in our sense of self, the way we view our future and the relationships we have with others. In this talk I will use empirical evidence to demonstrate how memories are distributed across our lifespan and the crucial role they play in shaping our sense of self. I will also use clinical case studies to show what happens when memory becomes disrupted, with a particular focus on CR, a woman who sustained significant brain damage as a 6 result of encephalitis. The talk will conclude with a discussion about our potentially unique capacity for mental time travel and the psychological relevance of our sense of past, present and future.
