Context is critical for making memories | Futurity - 0 views

  •  
    "Very often, our memories must distinguish not just what happened and where, but when an event occurred-and what came before and after.

    New research shows that a part of the brain called the hippocampus stores memories by their "temporal context."" We need to remember not just what happened, but when.

Library War Service slides collection now online and browsable | American Library Assoc... - 0 views

  •  
    While the battles, uniforms, and weapons that made up a World War I serviceman's life are very well documented in the history books, the day-to-day monotony of a soldier's life doesn't often get as much attention. The ALA Archives has recently migrated our collection of digitized lantern slides from World War I into the CONTENTdm system, which shows one way these men filled their downtime: reading.
