PROF. SARAH ROBINS

I am an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Kansas, and the Director of Graduate Studies for our M.A. and Ph.D. programs. I’m also an affiliate of the Cognitive and Brain Sciences Ph.D. Program, in KU’s Psychology Department.

My research is focused primarily on memory, through which I discuss a range of issues in philosophy of mind, psychology, and neuroscience. I am particularly interested in the concept of the memory trace, or engram, and the role it plays in both everyday and scientific thinking about remembering.
