How Does Your Memory Work? Part 2/3

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Here, in part two, the BBC video on memory picks up right where it left off in part one (originally this was most likely one thirty-minute video). We begin by following a man who was born prematurely and is not able to recall his past since his memory has never fully developed. Photographs and written notes take the place of his memories. In research shown, brain activity occurs in the same place when a person is dwelling on the past or the future, so imagining the future may be possible by piecing together memories. Explore the workings of the brain with your psychology or biology class. This video does pause mid-sentence at the end once again, so you will need to show part three to continue the thought.
