Seeing consciousness through the lens of memory

Joseph E. LeDoux, Hakwan Lau

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this My Word, Joseph LeDoux and Hakwan Lau argue that everyday human conscious experiences cannot be understood separately from memory. The authors build on a tripartite model of memory as a way of fractionating consciousness into components that account for wide ranging experiences, from the simplest sensory experience of the color of an apple to a full-blown feeling of fear or other emotions.
