Like To Help Others

Memories Are Associations

The more information that is available to us, the more we are unable to retain it. Memory means association and most information we consume may be simply buried inside, lurking deep in, and surfacing when the right cue pops up.

Sometimes the brain forgets on purpose

A big part of our forgetting is related to a healthy functioning of our memory: our brains select what’s important and dismiss the rest.

When you are exposed to the same information multiple times, it takes less time to trigger and set in motion the information in your long-term memory and it becomes easier for you to fetch the information when you need it.
