University to host psychology symposium

California State University, Sacramento will host a free public symposium featuring three leading speakers in the field of cognitive psychology— Barbara Knowlton of UCLA; Karl Pribram of Stanford and Georgetown; and Endel Tulving of the University of Toronto. The event, "Cognitive Psychology 1960-2005," will be held from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 9 in the University Union Redwood Suite.

The symposium's featured speakers are all internationally recognized contributors of research in the field of cognitive psychology. Knowlton is a regularly published author specializing in language processes and the neural systems that support cognitive activities. Pribram co-authored Plans and the Structure of Behavior, a book that helped open up the field of cognitive psychology. His career in neuropsychology has included the contribution of a holographic theory of memory encoding. Tulving is widely recognized as one of the world's leading researchers on memory processes, episodic memory and the use of the newest technology to measure and study the foundations of consciousness.

Organizers say the symposium's goal is to provide individuals with a better understanding of cognitive theory on contemporary psychology and to develop an appreciation of its increasingly neuroscientific trends.
