“Mental time travel” is not just a concept from science fiction. The brain’s ability to engage in mental time travel refers to its capacity to imagine or remember events from the past and anticipate or plan for events in the future. We hope to deepen our understanding of how humans navigate through time. This research has broad implications, helping us understand how we remember the past and make better decisions for the future, and could lead to earlier, more accurate diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.
