Thinking Deep (part 5)

I’ve been on a recent science craze, and–while none of you know it–I’ve been binge-watching DNews, a science-based YouTube channel. So unlike the previous articles in the Thinking Deep series, this will have an answer.

So our question is: Why don’t we remember being babies?

So, basically, there are memories called semantic memories, which everyone has. They are like cause-and-effect situations or meanings, but they lack episodic memory, which is places and events.

Your hippocampus doesn’t start connecting these memories until around 2-4 years old, so you don’t remember places or events, but remember words and stuff like that.
