How memories form and how we lose them – Catharine Young

Catharine Young | TED-Ed

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-memorie…

Think back to a really vivid memory. Got it?

That second memory probably isn’t as strong—but why not?

Why do we remember some things, and not others?

And why do memories eventually fade? Catharine Young gives the basics on memory and memory loss.
