Do you know what your first memory is?

I know mine was on my parents wedding day – I'm being lifted off a white bench outside by someone  and I can see my little white sandals on my feet as I look down at them. That's it. A three-second lightning-quick snapshot. I was a few weeks away from my second birthday.

I can still see my shoes as I get picked up off the bench – but did it ever actually happen?

A new study in the journal Psychological Science says that more than likely it's a fabrication. Spooky, right? 

 

What's your earliest memory of a feeling? ⠀ Around the age of three, and I had the most vivid dream that I flew around the giant living room in the house we were living in. I remember looking down and seeing the white couches that my family still owns, still in disbelief that I was flying, and I remember twirling and diving in the air as I gained more confidence. I remember the feeling of wide-eyed wonder and pure bliss. It's a feeling I get that only comes with firsts. It's the same feeling I remember having on my first roller-coaster, the first time I travelled outside the country, the first time I developed my own film in the darkroom, the first time I saw the Northern Lights, the first time I drove my van Bessie. And every time I see birds fly I remember that wonder and bliss of what it's like to fly [even if it was only in a dream].⠀ ⠀

Researchers from the UK asked more than 6,600 people about their first childhood memory.

According to Science Alert, they found that 2,500 of participants – almost 40 percent – said that they had formed memories before the age of two-years-old as well as more than 890 of those people stating that their their first memory takes place before they turned one!

The scientists now say though that those memories are completely imagined…they're not real memories.

So why are we convinced that they are? 

The study explained that our brains seem to be simply incapable of retaining information from before the age of three.

However, the thing is, the scientists found that people's memories were age-appropriate. 

This means that they're not memories that got muddled in time because they mention prams, cribs or wanting to communicate before knowing how to talk.

Now this is the interesting bit.

The research suggests that these recollections are actually being pieced together from photographs people have seen and stories they may have been told etc. 

"We suggest that what a rememberer has in mind when recalling fictional improbably early memories is an episodic-memory-like mental representation consisting of remembered fragments of early experience and some facts or knowledge about their own infancy/childhood," explained psychologist Shazia Akhtar. 

So do you think that you've created events in your mind that never took place?

We all know that memory isn't the most reliable of things and this study certainly gives weight to that  – frankly, it's made us question our own ''first memories.''

Kate will welcome her third child at the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital. The Duchess also gave birth to her son Prince George and daughter Princess Charlotte at St. Mary’s Hospital in London.

Prince William and Kate revealed that they were expecting their third child last September. They had to announce Kate’s pregnancy earlier than usual because the Duchess suffers from severe morning sickness.

The baby will be born fifth in line to the throne. Their official title will be HRH Prince or Princess of Cambridge.
