So I guess this belongs under the shameless self-promotion tag – I helped plan the show – but the latest Radio Lab is on a topic near and dear to my frontal cortex. It’s about the dishonesty of memory, the way we are constantly recreating, reconsolidating and refining our sense of the past. Highlights include interviews with Joe Ledoux, Oliver Sacks and Elizabeth Loftus. The show also digresses into the necessity of protein synthesis for the remembering process, the possibility of implanting false memories and, in my favorite section, the case of an amnesiac who can only remember reality in 7 second bursts. Not even Beckett could imagine an existential condition that awful.
