Event description

Description

Memories of individual moments can allow us to travel into the past and imagine the future. Could they also be what make us human? Paula Croxson (Assistant Professor of Neuroscience at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine) digs deep into her research to hunt for clues, document crime scenes, and push forward the frontiers of science to find what makes episodic memory unique.

Directed by Mark Kennedy-McClellan. Episodes of Memory is the first trial in an ongoing experiment pairing theater directors with academics to bring their research and ideas to life on stage. This program is a collaboration between The Story Collider and Caveat, and is supported by Science Sandbox, a Simons Foundation initiative dedicated to engaging everyone with the process of science.

Paula Croxson is a neuroscientist, musician and open water swimmer. She is an Assistant Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where she runs a lab researching how complex autobiographical life memories work – and how they fail. Paula received an M.A. from the University of Cambridge and a M.Sc. and a Ph.D. from the University of Oxford before moving to New York 7 years ago from the U.K. She is also the flautist in alternative rock band Marlowe Grey and nerdy rock band Pavlov’s Dogz. The swimming is apparently for “fun”.
