Memory and the Brain

Welcome to the virtual home of the Brain and Memory (BaM) Lab at Leiden University, headed by Franka (Franziska) Richter.

At the BaM Lab we use behavioral tasks and neuroimaging methods to study how memories are formed and remembered, how they influence each other, and how memory interacts with other cognitive processes such as cognitive control or decision making.

Memories fundamentally shape who we are, and how we interact with this world. Studying the cognitive neuroscience of memory is a fascinating journey – take a look around!
