What Experts Wish You Knew about False Memories

Post by bindeweede » Mon Aug 08, 2016 10:38 pm

Every memory you have ever had is chock-full of errors. I would even go as far as saying that memory is largely an illusion.

This is because our perception of the world is deeply imperfect, our brains only bother to remember a tiny piece of what we actually experience, and every time we remember something we have the potential to change the memory we are accessing.
