memories must somehow be represented physically in the brain. brain chemistry and structure is altered by experience and the stability of these physicochemical changes presumably corresponds to the retention duration of memory. so what exactly is a memory? what kind of physical trace is left in the brain after we have learnt some new skill or fact? what is forgetting and why are some memories quickly forgotten and others never return? these are questions to which i shall return...
