Course Description

Memory is one of the most basic and important functions of the human brain.  In fact, without memory we can't learn.  Most people think of memory as how we recall past events, but it is also the building blocks for almost everything we do in the present and future.  Our memories provide us with a sense of our own personality and give us the information we need to function properly in the everyday world.  Communication, problem solving and relationships all rely to some extent on memories that we use to inform us as we take action. 

Of course, our brains can't remember everything.  Brains simply don't have the capacity; if they tried to remember everything we experienced, there wouldn't be room for anything else.  Involuntary muscle function, thought processes, the senses and numerous other activities would be crowded out.  There are dozens of variables that affect how much we remember, how long we retain it and whether we can recall it.  Fortunately, we can learn ways to improve how much we remember and enhance how long we remember it.
