Is the memory of humans unlimited?


Question asked by: stevieb

It would seem to make sense to expect there to be a limit.

This is because the spatial extent of the brain is clearly limited as can be seen by the fact that our bodies are not infinite in size.

Scientists have a fair handle on the number of neurons and connections there are in our brains, and as it seems very reasonable to think these connections are somehow what store and recall information the memory capacity of the brain would seem to be directly related to this.

Since these are in finite number then it follows logically that our memory is allow finite in size, though quite what our brain capacity is of course no one at the moment knows.
