The mystery of memory: Unveiling FXR1P
from By Dorothy L. Tengler
Ordinary human memory is a mess. Most of us can recall the major events in our lives but may have to hear a phone number a dozen times before we can repeat it. It's easy for us to forget things we've learned — like the periodic table. The fundamental problem is the seemingly haphazard fashion in which our memories are organized. Neuroscientific research suggests that our brains don't use a fixed-address system like computers, and memories tend to overlap, combine and disappear for reasons no one yet understands.
