Memory is under heavy scrutiny by a new generation of scientists — and they’re posing an uncomfortable question: Can we trust what we remember about our lives? Just as we often recall someone’s name incorrectly, scientists say we can misremember critical personal events, catastrophes and even crimes we think we saw committed. Recent studies are questioning the fragile unreliability of the human memory — with enormous implications for justice, psychology and our sense of who we are.
