Suparna Rajaram’s research focuses on memory and amnesia. In one line of research, she studies the transmission of memory in groups and social networks. In a second line of research, testing both people with intact memory and with organic amnesia, she studies the differences between implicit and explicit memory, the distinction between episodic and semantic memory, and how attention modulates long-term memory. In a third line of research, she studies the nature of emotional memory.
