Hanse Lectures in Neuroscience

In the “Hanse Lectures in Neuroscience” series, we invite renowned speakers to hold lectures and visit the HWK and labs in the Region, usually on the last Thursday of the month during the semester at 6pm. After the lecture, all guests are invited to join the speaker for an informal dinner with the opportunity for further discussion and informal exchange. We appreciate your timely registration so that we can plan the catering accordingly!

Please send an E-Mail to Dr. Dorothe Poggel if you wish to receive invitations for the Hanse Lectures on a regular basis or if you would like to suggest a speaker.

Current and Future Hanse Lectures

  • 30. June 2022 - 18.00/ 6.00 pm (HYBRID - On Campus & Online)
    Prof. Dr. Richard M. Shiffrin

    The Processes of Short-and Long-term Memory.
    Abstract: “In 1968 Dick Atkinson and I published a now famous model outlining the processes residing in short-term memory that control the storage in and the retrieval from various limited capacity short-term memories and relatively permanent long-term memory. The years since have seen numerous developments and advances yet the basic structure presented in that chapter remains an excellent account today. Nonetheless, the science of memory has advanced over the years, and I take the opportunity of this lecture to reprise what we now know about the storage in and retrieval from short-term memories and long-term memory. The lecture will include the way event memory and knowledge evolve together, as laid out in a Psychological Review article by Angela Nelson and me in 2013.”
