Basically, there is a small part of your brain called the hippocampus that forms new memories. It receives all sorts of information such as the things you see, hear and feel to make a memory. If the memory gets “remembered” a lot of times or is a particularly strong one, it can then get stored in another part of the brain.
There have been a number of questions about memories and how they are formed, so check those answers out as well, particularly the answers from @Emma!
Check out the answers to this question – I think they cover it pretty well!
How much of the brain would we use to learn each day?
Yay for Kristyn and Emma.. I’ve nothing to add 🙂
