Jennifer Talarico, professor and head of psychology, shared insights with The Independent about the act of remembering the events of Sept. 11—and how loss and trauma can cause remembering to take many forms.

Talarico, who has long studied flashbulb memory in association with traumatic events, explained that our present influences how we remember the past—sometimes in ways that are known and sometimes in ways that we don’t realize.
