Musing on a Friday morning on the way to work ☺️: Reconstructive Memory

NEUROSCIENCE - Reconstructive Memory:

“Contrary to popular belief, memory does not work like a video-recorder, faithfully capturing the past to be played back unerringly at a later time. Rather, even when we are accurate, we are reconstructing events from the past when we remember.”

This is wonderful Murali!
Which is why I’m of the firm belief that memory is a verb in humans and not a noun.
