Babies aren’t good at remembering things. Well, that’s not accurate. Babies aren’t good at making long term memories. Think about it. Do you remember stuff from when you were baby?
For along time, people assumed babies started to form long term memories as language developed. These two things happen at roughly the same time, so it makes sense. But, new research suggests something else. New brain cells being made in baby brains might actually be the reason why babies can’t create long term memories. Isn’t the brain a crazy thing?
