Why do we tend to forget things, and how can we make our memory better?

If you think of your brain as a neural supercomputer, its memory capacity would be around one million gigabytes. That’s enough to store half a million hours of TV shows. Of course, there’s no storage disk in your brain, and we can only estimate the brain’s capacity for memories. But one thing we know for sure – there’s no chance that your brain will run out of storage space during your lifetime. Then why do you tend to forget things? And how can you make your memory work better?
