Your most vivid memories are often flawed

Known as flashbulb memories, whenever something traumatic happens in your life your brain takes an emotionally charged photo. For example, anyone old enough to remember 9/11 or the Challenger disaster could probably describe in vivid detail where they were and what they were doing when the news broke. The only problem is that a lot of those vivid details would be completely wrong and several studies have shown that the strong emotions associated with the memory often skew your recollection.
