The objective of this course is to present the functioning of human memory in interaction with other cognitive functions from a multimodal approach (experimental, lifespan, pathological, cerebral, immersive technology), and according to a representational and a more embodied and situated conception of cognition. The course aims to present the latest research in cognitive science on human memory in the domain of interaction between memory and for instance: multidimensional self, attention and executive functions, sense of presence, action and body, self-regulation, and prospection.

The course will also be an opportunity to present more ecological and embodied paradigms of human memory. The final purpose of this course is to provide to the students a panel of new knowledge and approaches of human memory that could give them the theoretical and methodological background to generate innovative research on human memory and associated cognition.

  • Class 1. New approaches to Human memory: ecological and embodied conceptions (P Piolino)

  • Class 2. Models and new experimental methods in designing and testing naturalistic and embodied memory : from encoding to retrieval (P Piolino + A Gaston Bellegarde)

  • Class 3. Designing virtual reality methods for studying and training human memory (P Piolino + A Gaston-Bellegarde)

  • Class 4. Attention/executive function and memory encoding (M Sperduti)

  • Class 5. Memory and states of consciousness (mindfulness/mindwandering) (M Sperduti)

  • Class 6. Event segmentation and memory for narrative material: the case of film memories (M Sperduti)  

  • Class 7. Neurocognitive mechanisms of false memory: from normal to pathological forms of memory distortions  (V La Corte)

  • Class 8 . Memory and prospection system (episodic, spatial, prospective and future memory) (P Piolino + A Gaston Bellegarde)

  • Class 9. Memory and prospection system (self-projection, imagination, theory of mind) (P Piolino)

  • Class 10. Memory and multidimensional self (narrative self, working self) (P Piolino)

  • Class 11. Memory and multidimensional self (body self) (P Piolino & A Gaston Bellegarde)

  • Class 12. Oral presentations of the students, conclusions and debates (P Piolino & M Sperduti & V La Corte)

  • Class 13. Final written Exam

  • Sciences cognitives – M1/S2
    Suivi et validation – semestriel hebdomadaire = 4 ECTS
    MCC – exposé oral, examen

Pré-requis

The course does not presuppose very particular knowledge, but it is required to have taken a level 2 course in psychology or cognitive neuroscience.

The students would have access on a website to basic reading on memory and embodied cognition ahead of taking the class (e.g., Barsalou, L. W. (2008). Grounded cognition. Ann. Rev. Psychol. 59, 617–645. doi: 10.1146/annurev.psych.59.103006.093639 ; Versace et al., La cognition incarnée: une cognition située et projetée. Mardaga, 2018; Hommel, B. (2004). Event files: feature binding in and across perception and action. Trends Cogn. Sci. 8, 494–500.doi:10.1016/j.tics.2004.08.007;  Plancher G, Barra J, Orriols E, Piolino P. (2013). The influence of action on episodic memory: a virtual reality study. Q J Exp Psychol (Hove). 2013;66(5):895-909. doi: 10.1080/17470218.2012.72265).
