Our memory makes us who we are – we believe. The sum of our experience and our knowledge is nevertheless not an archive in which memory content is can be stored as in a safe and retrieved when needed, but a network that is constantly reorganising itself and is much more dynamic, than we are usually aware of. The two neurologists Christoph Ploner and Carsten Finke present the results of memory research on patients and healthy people, which show how ephemeral perceptions become memory contents and how they remain, change or be forgotten again.
