DailyGood: The Link Between Memory & Imagination
- There are no days in life so memorable as those which vibrated to some stroke of the imagination. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Tip of the Day:
While most children can easily imagine themselves as astronauts, athletes or superheroes, make-believe might not be so easy for older generations. Recent brain imaging studies have shown that people use the same mechanisms in the brain to imagine as they do to remember, suggesting that older adults may have as much trouble imagining as they do remembering. A new study, detailed in the January issue of the journal Psychological Science, investigated just that and found that younger adults were better at telling details of past, remembered events and future, made-up ones than older adults.
Be The Change:
Reflect on the most imaginative phase of your own life.
