Summary
Diving for Seahorses reveals the complex secrets of one of our most fascinating and least understood faculties: our memory. Hilde and Ylva Ostby - one a writer, the other a neuropsychologist, interweave history, research and personal stories in this exploration of the evolving science of memory, from its Renaissance beginnings to the present day. They interview neuroscientists, famous novelists, taxi drivers and quizmasters to help explain how memory works, why it sometimes fails and what we can do to improve it. Filled with research and case studies, the result is an adventure through human memory
