Temporal Codes for Memories: Issues and Problems

Excerpt

This book represents an expanded version of the material covered in the MacEachran Lectures given at the University of Alberta in March, 1976. I can only hope that my excursion into the temporal coding of memories as recorded in this book justifies the high honor I felt at being asked to participate in this annual lecture series.

It is a pleasure to acknowledge again the continued and critical support by the Psychological Sciences Division of the Office of Naval Research in carrying out the experiments reported here.The current support is authorized by Contract Number N00014-76-C-0270.

The data-collection phase of the first major experiment to be reported began in 1971. During the past five years the direct supervision of my laboratory has been handled in succession by three dedicated and patient graduate research assistants, Joel Zimmerman, Charles Reichardt, and Robert Malmi.The latter assistant gracefully accepted my unrealistic timetable for completion of experiments during the six-month period before the lectures were to be given and proceeded to see that the deadlines were met. I am grateful to another assistant, Susan Kapelak, for the data of Experiment 3, which was collected as a part of another project.Finally, my thanks are given to Phyllis Van Hooser for her careful preparation of the final manuscript.
