Catalyst - Memory Matters

Our memories make us who we are. From a first kiss - to long, hot summer holidays - memory represents who we are, how we learn and how we navigate the world. But your memory is not as accurate as you think and far more changeable than you know. So how does it actually work?

In this episode of Catalyst, GP Dr Caroline West meets scientists working at the forefront of memory research and introduces viewers to the remarkable individuals whose exceptional memories and unique abilities are helping to unlock the secrets of memory.

Across Australia, world leading scientists are on a race against time to understand how our memory works - and how it changes as we age. We’ll learn first-hand the latest tips on how to keep our memories better, for longer and test the memory of the crowd.
