Q&A with John Wixted

April 17, 2012

…interesting than our best theories assume. When trying to make sense of how memory works (which is my field of study), researchers are guided by competing theoretical accounts. Over time, one theory of memory seems more viable than another, but the evidence is rarely conclusive. Then an experiment occurs to…
