Memory is our ability to learn something, then store it, retain it and recall it when needed. Our memories are fundamental to our sense of self, to our personality, our history and the ability to navigate through our world. It’s been said also that memory is more about helping us predict the future than dwelling on the past. On almost every level of human activity, from communication and movement to problem solving and having relationships, our memories are called into action.
