M. Ann Hall and Bruce Kidd

Eva Dawes Spinks (1912–2009) was an outstanding Canadian high jumper in the 1930s. The present paper traces her early life, successful athletic career, and her decision in 1935 to join a group of athletes on a goodwill tour of the Soviet Union organized by the Workers’ Sports Association of Canada. Upon her return, Dawes was suspended by the Women’s Amateur Athletic Union of Canada. She retired from competition and became involved in the Canadian campaign to boycott the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Much later, Dawes adamantly denied any political involvement. The purpose of this paper is to examine and possibly explain the incongruity between the historical evidence and Dawes’s later denials. More broadly, it is a discussion about the relationship between history and individual memory.

On November 29, 2014 during a Liverpool FC home game against Stoke City FC, home fans flew a huge banner reading, “Let me tell you a story of a poor boy . . . .” By doing so, they referred to the song imprinted in the collective memory of Liverpool fans about “poor Scouser Tommy” who was killed by

Memory performance is related to dementia, and plays an important role in the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common form of dementia. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-V (DSM-V), clear evidence of progressive decline in memory and learning is

For example, a cross-sectional study using a hippocampus-dependent relational memory task in children ( Chaddock et al., 2010 ) has indicated that greater aerobic fitness is associated with larger hippocampal volume and superior memory performance. A longitudinal, randomized

Age-related cognitive decline often begins before 60 years of age in many individuals ( Salthouse, 2009 ), and memory dysfunction is one of the most common hallmarks of age-related cognitive impairment ( Grady & Craik, 2000 ). Age-related memory decline often accompanies hippocampal atrophy ( Mega

With Baddeley’s model as a framework, the field of working memory (WM) is the predominant means of studying posture–cognition interaction for spatial and nonspatial tasks. Indeed, spatial
