  • I've read a neuroscience book recently that discussed the idea that every time we recall a memory, there is a slight physical change in our brain and that memory is altered ever so slightly. Each time we remember something, we change that memory.

    Think about how many times you've thought about and told the stories that you're now sharing on Cowbird.

    Do you ever find yourself wondering what really happened?
