LIFE@Lynchburg: Your Earliest Recollections: A Cognitive Theory You Will Never Forget!

April 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Presented by Ken West ’91 HAA.

Early recollections are memories created in the first six years of our lives. These memories contain the unique “instructions” followed throughout our lives, both good and bad. During the talk, West will explain what early recollections are, and allow attendees to privately write down one of their own. Cognitive psychologists have a specific definition of early recollections, which may surprise attendees. For example, West says he only has three early recollections from his first six years of life, while the average person has six. After attending this talk, you will likely pay closer attention when someone shares a memory from their early childhood.
