The psychology department was fortunate to have New York Times best-selling author Luke Dittrich visit our department on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 to present his talk: Patient H.M.: A Story of Memory, Madness, and Family Secrets. Over 80 people attended the facinating talk. We would like to thank the Franklin Foundation for their generosity in providing funding his visit.
