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.
