Why your memories can't be trusted – video

Memory does not work like a video tape – it is not stored like a file just waiting to be retrieved. Instead, memories are formed in networks across the brain and every time they are recalled they can be subtly changed. So if these memories are changeable, how much should we trust them?

I'll go one further in saying I believe that memory storage may even be non-local and the brain is involved more with retrieval than storage.

Everybody knows memory is not perfect but it is highly reliable or we would have gone extinct.
