Memories are a crucial part of getting through the day, doing your job, and your identity. While memories can often feel like absolute truth, science doesn't agree.
Creating and storing memories is not a fail-proof process and is not yet completely understood. According to the most recent theory, when something happens, different parts of the scenario are stored in different areas of the brain. As the memory is recalled, it is actually reconstructed and sometimes pieces are missing or put back in the wrong order.
