Chapter 7: Memory is mainly about how memory operates, how to retrieve it and how reliable our memories really are. This chapter says our memories are generally reliable. Most people can often recite lyrics to many songs and recognize people from many years ago. Some people, with a condition known as hyperthymestic syndrome have exceedingly memories and can remember accurately almost anything they have experienced. However, most of us are prone to being fooled by our memories. Sometimes someone's account of incident can change drastically over a a period of a few years. For example, when a student was asked where she was at the time when she heard of the challenger explosion, she said she was in her religion class. However, two and a half years later, she said she was in her dorm room when she heard the news. I find this really surprising because I always believe that my memories are accurate but this proves that they aren't always.
