Description
 
Rusiko Bourtchouladze (au). Memory is what defines who we are & who others are in our minds. But why are memories so complex & mysterious? We remember things every instant, but how are memories formed? And why, if remembering is so ordinary, do our memories fail so often? What is happening in the brain when we recall a face, reconstruct the image of a place, or struggle to find an answer that we think we know? What do genes have to do with memory? And, finally, are we the only creatures who remember & forget, & if not, are there facets of memories common to different species? This  work attempts to answer all these questions & more, deftly weaving the history of ideas about memory with rich personal anecdote & cutting-edge scientific research.
