We always keep focusing on the memory power of a person. If a person is intelligent then we easily say that his memory is sharp. If one has done something wrong then we say that he has lost it, here it shows the memory. Actually, a moment in which we live will become just a memory the next moment. These memories are stored in the brain.
But Emotionally thinking there is a memory with every object we have. Just seeing your old school uniform or a school id card or anything related to school that day flickers before your eyes which can come up with a smile on your face and tears in your eyes. Not only school but anything from a piece of paper to every corner of your house that has your memories stored in it. See your old clothes that can have a memory with them. Every street you travel, every person you meet, listen to, or just watch that has some memories with it. Some are joyful and some may be unhappy. If you were a poor man in the past but now became a rich man then the memories of the poor past help to keep your feet on the ground in order to avoid any pride. The memory of a person whom we have lost constantly gives you regret of losing that person. Some bad memories teach us many things. It tells us of our wrongs as well as we understand the difference between good and bad persons. By keeping that in mind we always try to save our future, isn’t it?
To keep remembering big events or personalities we humans built memorials which is the statue or structure established to remember an event or a person. That tells us the greatness of those personalities and places where big events happened in past become precious parts of history.
Rick Huganir, Ph.D. researcher says that memories are all about connections. And When we learn something—even as simple as someone’s name—we form connections between neurons in the brain. These synapses ( a gap between 2 neurons to transmit a signal from one neuron to another) create new circuits between nerve cells, essentially remapping the brain. The sheer number of possible connections gives the brain unfathomable flexibility—each of the brain’s 100 billion nerve cells can have 10,000 connections to other nerve cells. The Strongness or weakness of these synapses depends on how often we have exposed to a certain event. Therefore it is hard to remember a person’s name after a first introduction.
So, don’t worry if you’re not remembering something after seeing only once that’s the part of the brain responsible for it that annoys you!
