Rodrigo’s talk references the writing of Jorge Luis Borges, particularly his short stories 'Shakespeare’s Memory' and 'Funes the Memorious', which deal with memory.

He combines concepts from neuroscience about visual perception and memory with discussion of philosophical and literary ideas about the part played by memory in personal identity.
