Final Abstract- Memory Lane- Gindy Nagabayashi

There are two types of memory: semantic and episodic. Episodic memories are memories from personal experiences and related feelings. By flashing a series of pictures and words visitors will walk down a black tunnel. As they proceed through the exhibit, words and pictures will flash onto the walls from projectors to induce memory recall, measurements of neurotransmitters released from audience will be collected. The data collected will be displayed in the form of a blueprint of the brain and the different regions triggered by the images representing human consciousness interacting with memory. When multiple people are interacting with system, similarities and differences measured will also be indicated. The purpose of this project is to explore emotions induced by episodic memory recall, specifically enhancing the human consciousness for the audience.
