The changes in the brain during the growth and development of a baby into an adult are explored. Susan Greenfield looks at how little of the fine structure of our brains is predetermined at birth, how the connections between nerves are constantly changing in response to what we encounter in the outside world. She explains her view that learning, memory and even the process of becoming a unique individual, should all be seen as a restless brain adapting minute by minute to the environment it encounters. Life is about how the world leaves its mark on us.

The brain is made of the same biological ingredients as the rest of the body, and yet somehow it manages to generate the indescribable phenomenon of consciousness.

In a lifetime, the average person will take 58 holidays, meet 1700 friends and acquaintances, read 2100 books and watch 5800 films. Without memory, these events would remain just that - a series of unrelated events or things. But through memory, these events become autobiographical, transforming them into events which happened to me. How Does Your Memory Work? is a documentary exploring the staggering complexity of memory, something most of us take for granted.
