Almost everyone fails to remember their lives as toddlers. If there is anyone who remembers life as an infant, then they are among the few. Most answers to these questions are derived from parents or other family members. However, there are a few who seem to clearly remember their past or even the lives lived in the last centuries which is a very rare situation.
Scientists have researched the same topic and there were different outcomes that explained childhood memory loss. Some say that infants below the age of six years have brains that are not fully developed. This is the reason behind unclear or no memories of childhood. Six years old children are believed to have memories that last for minutes in the short-term, and a few weeks for the long-term period.
Neuroscientists believe that the part of infants’ brains where long-term memories are kept is normally not fully developed. Sally Goddard Blythe believes that people cannot speak about the events that happened in their toddler time, before knowing to speak their native language fluently until three years old. This was surprising as Doctor Elward added that infants have their childhood memories, but they seem to vanish quickly and cannot be traced.
