Memory, Lies, Neuroscience

“The more a person recalls a memory, the more they change it. Each time they put it into language, it shifts. The more you describe a memory, the more likely it is that you are making a story that fits your life, resolves the past, creates a fiction you can live with…Once you open your mouth, you are moving away from the truth of things. According to neuroscience.” –Lidia Yuknavitch
