Research by Deborah Burke, the W. M. Keck Distinguished Service Professor, Professor of Psychology, was mentioned on a recent episode of National Public Radio's "Fresh Air." The segment, which aired on April 14, was about "The Surprising Strengths of the Middle-Aged Brain" and featured an interview with author Barbara Strauch. She discusses Burke's research on the tip-of-the-tongue phenomena: "Deborah Burke...has dissected what happens, for instance, to [forgetting] names. She finds that the problem with names is basically not a storage issue. It's a retrieval issue."
