Guest lecture – Mémoire de mammouth: How stress can affect our memory (in French)

We all know what it’s like to forget something important when we’re experiencing high levels of acute or chronic stress. But why does stress have this effect on our memory?

In this lecture, Mr. Plusquellec will teach the basics of human memory. Participants will be asked to perform short group memory tests that will show how “total recall” is not as total as you might think!

Then, Mr. Plusquellec will briefly describe the stress response and demonstrate how stress can impact our ability to recall details by changing our perception of events that get encoded in memory.

Participants will learn that the best way to prevent the effects of stress on memory is to reduce stress itself! The talk will end with a list of concrete ways to diminish and control your stress response.

On May 27, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Zoom, attend a lecture by Sonia Lupien, presented by Pierrich Plusquellec, Co-Director of the Centre for Studies on Human Stress.
