Is your memory unreliable?
The human memory is notoriously fickle, especially when it comes to remembering details. Years of research has found that our brains tend to fill in the missing gaps with fiction or other memories when we cannot remember the specifics. In day-to-day life, this is not a bug, it’s actually a feature - we cannot possibly remember every single minute of every single day. But although our brains are sometimes not as reliable as we would like them to be, it could be much worse. Luckily science is constantly coming up with new findings that could improve the quality of our memories.
