Mnemonic processes are difficult to explore. Contrary to popular belief and despite the proliferation of techniques aimed at enhancing memory, it is hard to find strong and convincing methods. The little knowledge we have on the subject can still help us improve the way we teach and learn, both in terms of “how much” information we can retain, and for “how long”. 

Professors Antonio Malgaroli and Clelia Di Serio of USI Master in Cognitive Psychology in Health Communication will tackle the issue together with Dr. Paolo Paganetti, head of the Laboratory for Biomedical Neurosciences of Neurocentro della Svizzera italiana and Dr. Piercarlo Bocchi of SUPSI Department of Teaching and Learning. With an introduction by USI Rector Boas Erez, the conference will be held on Wednesday, March 14, at 6pm in room A12 on Lugano campus.
