Suzanne Corkin to Present at the Southern Festival of Books
Martinos Center researcher Suzanne Corkin will be presenting on her book Permanent Present Tense at the 2013 Southern Festival of Books. The book explores the life of - and her work with - amnesiac patient H.M., often described as "the most famous brain in the world" as the decades of psychological tests and brain scans he underwent helped to shape our understandings of how memory works. The Southern Festival of Books will take place Sunday, Oct. 13, in Nashville, Tenn. More information here.
