How this problem is overcome illuminates the mechanisms of this form of memory and how it interacts with conscious, explicit memory.

ICPS attendees will hear the latest scientific findings across several broad themes, and through the unique pairing of Integrative Science Symposia and methodological workshops, will learn valuable skills to further the body of knowledge in ways that are only possible through an integrative approach. ICPS speakers are among the world's most distinguished scientists and form an innovative, first-of-its-kind program in psychological science and its connections with related disciplines, including neuroscience, economics, sociology, anthropology, and linguistics. The keynote speakers are Stanislas DehaeneGeorge Lakoff, and Terrie E. Moffitt.
