Expertise: Imagine the following scenarios: a student who is building an understanding of physics by working practice problems, an educator who is trying to correct student misconceptions about evolution, and a traveler who has recently returned from Paris telling friends about the trip of a lifetime. The common thread connecting these examples is that the memories of the individuals described are changing through their actions. Dr. Butler is interested in the malleability of memory – the cognitive processes and mechanisms that cause memories to change or remain stable over time. More specifically, his research focuses on how the process of retrieving memories affects the content (e.g., events, specific details, narrative structure, etc.) and phenomenological characteristics (e.g., confidence, emotional intensity, vividness, etc.) of those memories. Retrieval is often viewed as a neutral event in which the contents of memory are assessed but left unchanged. However, a large body of research has shown that retrieval actually modifies memory. His program of research addresses both theoretical issues in cognitive psychology and practical applications to education and mental health. The broad aim of this research program is to gain a better understanding of how retrieval affects: memories held by individuals and those shared by groups (i.e. collective memories); memories for simple materials (e.g., word lists, facts, etc.) to more complex memories that are rich in sensory detail, emotion, and self-relevance, among other characteristics; and newly formed, episodic memories in contrast to well-learned semantic memories that have been integrated into the knowledge base.

Expertise: My research interest centers primarily around the question, What makes certain people vulnerable to becoming depressed? Most of my work has focused on cognitive factors, biases in perception, interpretation, and memory that seem to characterize depression. Most recently I have been interested in emotion regulation (avoidance, suppression, rumination, emotional processing, mindful attention) and how it plays into depression vulnerability. cognitive vulnerability to depression cognitive impairments in depression professional psychotherapy ethics communication
