Hey guys! So, as you may (or may not) know, I’m a part of the HuffPost Girls in STEM program! I’ve been working over the past several weeks with my amazing mentor Emilie learning about memories and how we store and remember them. So, as a part of this project, we decided to do a small project about memories—specifically, mapping about the brain networks through which memories are encoded and retrieved.
To do this, we need some sample memories.
This is where you guys come in!
It’d be fantastic if you guys could volunteer some memories for our project for us to analyze—it’s completely anonymous so if you write about the time you accidentally slipped and fell in front of your entire science class we won’t know it’s you ;)
Any memory will suffice—although we know you guys have some interesting ones. Maybe one time your neighbor’s cat looked at you kind of funny? Or maybe you accidentally dropped an egg but managed to catch it before it hit the ground and you decided that you were probably a ninja.
Don’t fail us now, Tumblr.
Just fill out the short survey linked below and you’re done! Do it.

On this day in science history…
Dr. Harvey Cushing (1869 – 1939), the first American neurosurgeon, performed his first brain surgery. Known as the “father of modern neurosurgery,” Cushing made wide-ranging and influential contributions to medicine, including his use of X-rays to diagnose brain tumors and his founding of the subdiscipline of endocrinology (the study of hormones and glands)
We’re enjoying these HuffPost Science color-changing mugs a little too much. #howdotheywork?! Who wants one?
