How accurate is our memory? Let’s Find Out! (Stage 4, Stage 5)
Do you remember at what time you woke up today? Or when was the last time you watched your favourite movie? Get ready to learn what affects memory through a series of investigation.
Memory plays a critical role in our survival which helps us to understand our behaviour and surrounding, and to reflect on the past to inform our future. But have you thought about what goes behind the scenes when you try to remember something? Your memory is like a jigsaw puzzle! When you try to remember an incident, you have to put the jigsaw pieces together. You might recall the incident correctly, or sometimes make an error. And often you may also miss a piece to complete the puzzle when you completely forgot about a specific part of the incident or take a piece from some other puzzle, i.e. from a different situation.
Join provisional psychologist, Priyadharshany Sandanapitchai to explore how far your memory can hold information accurately and what factors affect what you remember. Ready to test your memory?
