We’ve all been there.You’re done shopping at the mall or are walking out from the cinema,and you’re completely lost in the parking lot. Is the car to the left orright of the entrance? Three rows over, or four? Was this even thedoor you came in?Or you’re ready to leave the house and suddenly there’s a franticsearch on for your keys. You could swear you put them on the counterlast night when you came in because you immediately went for a glassof juice … or was that even yesterday when you did that? Wasn’t thatmore like three days ago?And who hasn’t suffered the embarrassment of standing in front of someone that you’ve just met, or even someone that you’ve known foryears, and suddenly their name is gone from your mind. Mark … no,Phil … no, Tom … no … It doesn’t seem to matter how long you’veknown the person or even how close you are to them, as it sometimeshappens even to parents – they go through the whole list of their kids’ names, and the names of a few kids from the neighborhood, beforethey land on the name of the child standing in front of them.What is it about our memory that makes it so unreliable like this? Itseems like such a strange part of our human psyche, unlike any other.When it’s time for our bodies to eat, without fail our stomach willgrowl. When our body needs liquid, our mouth gets dry. When weneed to chew our food, our mouth just naturally goes up and down.There’s no confusion with these systems, no lack of reliability when itcomes to their function!What is also so very bizarre about the human memory is that, whilewe might have a problem remembering where we parked just a fewhours ago, chances are we can remember the lyrics to our favorite
