For anyone who’s ever forgotten something or someone they wish they could remember, a bit of solace: Though the memory is hidden from your conscious mind, it might not be gone.

Brain research is so important to people of all ages. This work might give us some insight which will help children retain information. It might help people suffering from memory loss.
