Sleep & Long Term Memory
Long Term Memory
The memory marbles slowly become less colorful and finally turn grey as they get older, insinuating that they are about to be forgotten forever. Once forgotten, they are sent to the “memory dump” where they will vanish forever. This part in the movie refers to the decay theory of forgetting, which says that over time, a person will have total loss certain information. Psychologists, however, think that forgetting is more temporary rather than permanent. There has been research to show that while certain information can't be recalled just because someone wants to recall it, there's still some evidence of knowing the information. Forgotten memories can be retrieved by a relative event triggering a person to recall a memory.
