It’s not all in the past!

Posted on November 20, 2014

Dealing with the past, we don’t have a videotape of events in our brain.  Memory is a reconstruction. We piece together different bits of information when we recall events.  This involves lots of neural networks in different areas of the brain to be activated.

Our memory is like a jigsaw puzzle and sometimes we can distort, alter or add certain parts when the memory is being constructed.  Add into this a person’s emotional experience of the event then it could make it quite different to when the event originally occurred.  Lots of factors affect the way in which we piece together a puzzle and how we experience a recalled event; a person’s beliefs and expectations affect recall.

Sometimes these recalls appear to be experienced negatively, making them more severe and debilitating than they really were.
