Holly Bowen, PhD
Assistant Professor of Psychology at Southern Methodist University

How may age-related cognitive changes impact the links between emotion, motivation and memory? Psychologist Holly Bowen, PhD, examines her research into affective states, specifically emotion and motivation, and how they influence the formation of memories and past experiences. Using multiple methods, Dr. Bowen delves into the cognitive and neural mechanisms that support affect-modulated encoding and retrieval, including behavioral paradigms, computational modeling, neuroimaging with event-related potentials (ERP) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

The host for this event will be Julie Fratantoni, PhD, CCC-SLP.

The fall 2023 season will be hybrid. Register free of charge for the season and join us for as many talks as you are able.
