Daniel L. Schacter's research explores the relation between conscious and unconscious forms of memory and the nature of distortions and errors in remembering. Many of his studies are summarized in his 1996 book, Searching for Memory: The Brain, The Mind, and The Past, and his 2001 book, The Seven Sins of Memory: How the Mind Forgets and Remembers, both winners of the American Psychological Association's William James Book Award. In 2009, he received the Warren Medal from the Society of Experimental Psychologists for his research into true and false memories. He has also received the Harvard-Radcliffe Phi Beta Kappa Teaching Prize, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Troland Award from the National Academy of Sciences. He is and has been a member of the editorial advisory boards of many psychology and memory journals.
