Why Do People Remember Very Little About Things That Happened To Them In Early Childhood? Latest Answers

Câu trả lời mẫu cho câu hỏi: Why do people remember very little about things that happened to them in early childhood?

Well, I guess it happens because of developmental changes in basic memory processes. Infants and toddlers don’t have a fully developed memory, and they are just unable to make stable memories of events. What’s more, the brains of young children lack the skills to keep memories for a long time. I am also sure there are some scientific explanations for why the first few years of life are forgettable but, unfortunately, I don’t know them. The only thing I can add to my answer is that at some point, somewhere around the age of 5 -7, the brain supposedly gets rid of unused or ineffective brain connections making room for more advanced brain networks, which explains why our earliest memories date from approximately 5 years of age.
