There are many ways that humans are distinguished from other creatures, and among them, humans have unique memory mechanisms and have experienced many things in their lives, and these may be remembered by people, especially some of the more important things, all rely on people’s Remember to recall and remember again. However, investigations and studies have shown that when people reach adulthood, their childhood memories become more and more blurred. In fact, the master has no memory before the age of three, but even after the age of three, some things may be forgotten even if they are impressive, and some things can be remembered, and they are often very unique. . But the memory of a person’s life can reach several decades. Scientists have shown that people will lose their memories before the age of 6. Why? Psychologists reveal the answer for us.
In fact, for human memory, it is human beings’ grasp of their own rich spiritual power and spirit, and from a macro perspective, it can even be related to the development of human society. It is precisely because of the existence of memory that we can continue human society through words or all means. Researchers have suggested that people have no memory before the age of 6, and many people may be vague about their memories before the age of 6. It feels like I remember but I’m not sure if it happened. Some people even don’t know whether it is a dream or a real experience in childhood.
So why is this happening? Scientists have done a series of studies on this point, and most people may think that human memory changes with age. Many people think that a person’s memory is not deep enough when he is very young, because his consciousness at that time is not deep enough, so he can’t remember too many things, or because he is too young to have a good memory. However, in fact, scientists have found that this is not the case. The depth of memory is not directly related to human age. Perhaps for babies under one year old, they will also leave some small memories of things or pictures that make them impressive.
For example, a scientist once did an experiment on an 8-month-old baby. When he was 8 months old, he listened to some light melody songs and watched some more colorful pictures, but then gave him again when he was a little older. With the same stimulus, you will find that you still have a specific response to these. This shows that we believe that the existence of memory is related to age, which is wrong. Perhaps the reason why I didn’t have much impression of the childhood things was not because I was too young, but because there were other reasons.
Scientists explained that there are two main types of memories in a person’s life. One is memory at the time and the other is short-term memory. For the former, it can be stored for a long time, while the latter means that the existence time is shorter, but it is easier to remember. Studies have found that for young children, even their common sense memory ability is very strong, which can last as long as one month. It proves that the long-term memory of infancy may be much stronger than that of adults. So for most people, what happened before the age of 6 can’t be remembered. What is the reason?
We all know that short-term memory means to leave a deep impression in a short period of time, and the memory time is relatively short. Generally speaking, the capacity of short-term memory is 5-9 information unit modules. However, when a person is 3 to 6 years old, the capacity of short-term memory is 4 to 6 information modules, which means that at this time we may only store some important things in the memory of the brain. Scientists believe that because people’s brain capacity was not very large at that time, and the memory that can be accommodated was also limited, so they were not too impressed with things between the ages of six. As we grow older, at the age of 7 to 8, humans can have strong memories at this time.
Scientists also believe that as people grow older, their brain capacity increases, so they remember more things, and they can continue to analyze and recall the things they remember. However, for children, it is often because of their own preferences to remember some things they want to remember. For example, some children may only remember some specific things when they were young, such as being praised by their parents. But you must know that for children, these things cannot be consciously decided on their own. In fact, this is also extremely scary to think about. Perhaps many people’s memories of childhood before the age of 6 are only derived from dreams. At the same time, some vague memories will also form a collective, such as the famous “Mandela effect”, which may make people think of dreams. Confused with reality.
Memory is very magical. For everyone, the ability to remember is different, and for humans, such unique characteristics can also bring us many conveniences.
