Manhattan memory project: How 9/11 changed our brains

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 7, 2011

You’ll probably remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when you first learned that passenger jets had crashed into the World Trade Center. People tend to form exceptionally vivid memories of highly consequential news, and it doesn’t get much bigger than 9/11.

Recollections of that day have given researchers a unique window into how the brain forms memories of shocking events. “It’s as if a flashbulb goes off and you take a mental picture of your surroundings,” says psychologistWilliam Hirst of the New York School for Social Research.

Flashbulb memories, as they are known, are tricky to study as people are seldom keen to talk to researchers just after hearing or seeing emotionally charged news. It can also be difficult to know how accurate a person’s memory of the event is, since there is usually no way to be sure what actually happened. Read the rest of this entry »

A World Trade Center Progress Report

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on May 8, 2011

By BILL MARSH

Silverstein Properties, via Bloomberg News RECOMMEND THE HOPED-FOR RECONSTRUCTION Towers 2 and 3 will be initially limited to foundations and lower levels. Earliest completion for Tower 3 is 2015; there is no timetable for Tower 2.

After Sept. 11, it took nearly a decade to locate and kill Osama bin Laden, perhaps giving the nation, and especially the

families of those lost in the attacks, some sense of closure.

It will take much longer than that to heal the gaping wound in the Lower Manhattan cityscape. Blame politics, finances, legalities and the challenge of making the many compromises necessary for such an enormous reconstruction effort. But after spending much time on cleanup and foundation work, progress is ever more visible: The soaring 1 World Trade Center and another skyscraper are rising by about one floor per week; a spacious memorial is to open on the 10th anniversary of the attack this fall.

A full rebuilding of the site is still several years away, when (and if) demand for office space improves. Here is a progress report on the main features of the new center.
