Baby's memory vanished
This article talks about how a baby's brain is growing so fast that as it grows new cells it "deletes" memories in the process. Makes me wonder if this process of neurogenesis in infants is the same thing occurring in us as we grow older???
What do you think?
My guess, and it is purely a guess, is that it's similar except minus the growth part. Like with an elderly person, they can tell you in detail about something that happened 30 years ago but might have trouble recalling which day of the week it is. That long term vs short term memory.
