Sharing stories better

Retrieving memories, like sharing incidents with one another, helps in reinforcing remembrance of an event, says a study. People do, in fact, synchronise what they remember and what they forget after sharing memories with one another, according to researchers from Princeton University at New Jersey, in the US.  Known as mnemonic convergence, these collective memories are influenced both by a person recalling information and by those individuals sharing memories within a group. Based on both recall phases, the researchers calculated how similar the individual memories were within each 10-member community.
