Episode 1: When do we get our first memories?

In our pilot episode of I Wonder…, a caller wonders if it’s actually possible for her 30-something year old brother to recall a memory from when he was only 4 years old.

In addition to surveying some students on Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) campus, we explore the world of memories by talking with several memory experts: Lynne Reder from CMU, and Mark Wheeler and James Becker from the University of Pittsburgh. We also search for insight by talking with those who are constantly learning, but may not fully understand what a memory constitutes: children.
