|Scientists know more about how we forget
Some people are forgetful, while others can remember everything. Scientists know a lot about how the brain remembers facts and experiences. There is little research on how the brain forgets things. A new study looked at this. Researchers from the USA studied how the brain forgets things. The researchers study the brain and how it thinks and works. Their research may help people with memory problems. It may also help people who have depression and dementia. The lead scientist said: "It may sound surprising that people can control what and how they forget."
