Mind Clutter

“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember.”

Summer’s here! (Today’s the official first day.) That means I don’t have to indulge in spring cleaning anymore. We all realize that it’s important to clear out our home once in a while, but what about our brains?


A recent study from the Georgia Institute of Technology funded by the NSF indicates that people may be less sure of their memories when extra information floats around their heads. Participants aged 60 and older were often unsure of their recollections because their brains took in too much, while younger people focused only on specific details. Both age groups actually had the capability to hone in on the task, but older adults felt less confident about their answers.
