Memory Disorders Research Society

MDRS is a by-invitation-only professional society dedicated to the study of memory.
Members engage in basic and clinical research into how memory works and why it fails

The society meets each autumn.

Founded by Dr. Laird Cermak in 1988, the inaugural meeting of the Memory Disorders Research Society was held in Boston the following year. The society has met annually ever since, at a venue that rotates amongst the home institutions of its members. 

Programs from past meetings are available in the Archives.
