Study shows <b>we tend to think that we will remember something</b> <a href="">important more than we will</a>. <b>False memory can be implanted in someone's mind</b> <a href="">extremely easily</a>, something which marketers, politicians, elements with nefarious intentions have been exploiting for centuries and <b>our brain itself can create false memories</b> to <a href="">cope with trauma</a>.<div><br></div><div>Then there are numerous <a href="">memory biases</a> which clout our judgement leading to undesirable consequences for ourselves and for others around us. </div><div><br></div><div>In-spite of hard scientific evidence that our memory cannot be trusted, our day-to-day life, stability of the society; especially the <a href="">legal system</a> is built upon human memory. We need frictionless solutions to improve human memory.</div> 5 points posted by Abishek Muthian /problems/41-human-memory-lack-of-thereof-psychology-neuroscience 41 Mon, 14 Oct 2019 05:12:00 +0000
