Forgetting to Remember: Memory Network Function and Dysfunction in People With Schizophrenia

J. Daniel Ragland, PhD
Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
UC Davis School of Medicine


Learning objectives:
By attending this presentation, audience members will learn about:

  • How item-specific and relational encoding strategies can be used to learn new information.
  • The difference between retrieving memories based upon a sense of familiarity versus recollection.
  • How different regions in the prefrontal cortex and medial temporal lobe control these encoding and retrieval processes.
  • Which encoding and retrieval processes are generally unimpaired in people with schizophrenia, as well as the memory functions that are most impaired.
  • How certain areas in prefrontal and medial temporal lobe memory networks are differentially impaired in schizophrenia and can explain this unique pattern of memory strengths and weaknesses.
