Portable museum of inventiveness and oblivion

Museo portátil del ingenio y del olvido

Why do we remember certain names and some landscapes, but forget others? What happens so that one smile, among thousands of images that besiege us every day, remains in our memory? So far, the best answer is a combination of remembering and forgetting. Those who study the brain recognize that memory is more vulnerable and flexible than was thought for centuries: memories are changing, they are subject to permanent editing and rewriting.
