Human memory, formerly believed to be rather inefficient, is really more sophisticated than that of a computer. Researchers approaching the problem from a variety of points of view have all concluded that there is a great deal more stored in our minds than has been generally supposed.

Even dreams and other minor events supposedly forgotten for many years suddenly emerged in detail.
