I always though memories were created when we experience new events with people we love. It turns out I am wrong. Scientists have now watched the formation of memories take place and have concluded that memories are actually created when mRNA present in neurons is stimulated to produce proteins that create new neural connections. See Scientists film how the brain makes memories and Watch chemicals turn into memories for more details on this exciting process.
