The 6th FAM conference will feature 15 world leading experts in human and animal memory who have already RSVP (from USA, Canada, Japan, Norway, UK, Austria and Germany). This event is unique in this it aims at bringing new insights on major controversies in human recognition memory as well as bridging further human and animal memory by integrating findings from computational, molecular, neuroanatomical, electrophysiological and imaging studies using state-of-art technical approaches. Especially, this platform gives the unique opportunity to scientists to integrate data emerging from studies in humans and animals on the same MTL areas that however pertain to different thematic foci in memory research, for example the contribution of the MTL areas to the formation and retrieval of memory, the processing of space and time and how this contribution evolves with age and within the frame of pathologies. An integration of the findings emerging from these different subject areas will allow for a very thorough and more complete picture of the precise contribution of each MTL area to different aspects of memory and the mechanisms underlying these memory processes.

The event is also very ‘students-oriented’, with the organization of a daily ‘students /speakers-only brainstorming session’ lasting for an hour. During these ‘student/speakers –only session’ students have the unique opportunity to meet, in small groups, the speakers of their choice with no other presence than that of their peers to encourage active participation and get a direct feedback from speakers on their own take on memory function.
