It could be a very powerful introduction to start with the audio clip, even before introducing yourself or what you will be talking about. Start with the audio, relate it your memory, which serves as an introduction to you…do still say your name, just after your sound story.
at 00:53, you switch to a blank slide. While the blank slide is appropriate while the audio is playing, maybe you could have a picture of the truck you are talking about up. It will help engage the audience more in your story.
Then at 01:02 when you start talking about memory, put up a slide that says, “Autobiographical Memory” or “involuntary memory” Have slides reference what you are talking about…
at 04:50, say neutral before positive memory so it builds to the stronger emotion.
Remove section from 05:39–06:16. This may be too presumptuous to say about what your project will be at the moment.
I suggest including a concluding slide with the proposal plainly written with goals or objectives for your proposed project.
As for the design of your slides:
Hang quotation marks
Remove confusing syntax markers like  in quotes.
Make text for quote attribution less prominent (smaller, or grey. Make the quote pop more)
Add citations to bottom of the slides for quotes and the chart that you have. Where is this information from?
“Retain, Remember, Reflect, Recap” Is really close to the left edge with nothing else on the slides, so it leave the frame unbalanced. Perhaps make them in two columns more in the middle of the page.

Love the idea of starting with the audio clip. That was an awesome introduction / attention getter and personal. Yeah I think it also might be too factual, and I was more drawn to questions like Why memory is important, How do we exercise our memory, etc. You are also very credible and well-researched, good job!
