Keynote Address
On April 26th, author Joshua Foer will deliver the symposium keynote address.

In his book Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything, Foer recounts his yearlong quest to improve his memory under the tutelage of top "mental athletes." He draws on cutting-edge research, a surprising cultural history of remembering, and venerable tricks of the mentalist's trade to transform our understanding of human memory. In the end, Foer reminds us that – in every way that matters – we are the sum of our memories.
