How much do you understand about how memory works?

Christian Jarrett at Research Digest has just posted a great piece on professional psychologists' understanding of how memory works. How well do you score? You can test yourself here.

  1. Yes and a friend just pointed me tothis study which talks about every time we recall a memory, we also remake it - am loving the notion of "save as", rather than just "save"!

  2. Thanks! Very interesting. I think there are problems with the 'save as' analogy, as it relates to distortions to the label rather than the content. (When you do 'save as' to a document, you don't change the document, only the file name.) But anyway... it's a nice idea.
