Memory refers to the information and experiences that you store in your brain from the experiences that you have in your life. False memory refers to something that you imagine has happened but in reality your perception of the event is false. There are memory quotes which show just how flexible the human mind can be and the vast amount of memory storage that we are capable of. There are two types of memory that humans have, short term and long term. As you go through each day you remember many different things, but only the most important events are stored in long term memory and available days or years later. As you get older you may start experiencing problems with memory due to advanced age.
