Andrew Butler is interested in the malleability of memory – the cognitive processes and mechanisms that cause memories to change or remain stable over time. His research focuses on how the process of retrieving memories affects the content (e.g., events, specific details, narrative structure, etc.) and phenomenological characteristics (e.g., confidence, emotional intensity, vividness, etc.) of those memories.
