The mystery of memories. We remember had what happened when we were kids, but we can't remember what we ate yesterday. Why is this happening? Think back to a really vivid memory. Got it? Now try to remember what you had for lunch three weeks ago. That second memory probably isn’t as strong—but why not? Why do we remember some things, and not others? And why do memories eventually fade? Catharine Young gives the basics on memory and memory loss. In the animation below, the educator Catharine Young explains to us how our memories work and why we forget some things.
