We are just not very good at remembering things, by and large. Our short-term memory can only hold between five and nine things at a time. And our brain weighs three pounds (1.4kg) and is just larger than the average chicken. Yet it is pretty fantastic. It can identify gender, how old someone is just by looking at a photograph of someone's nose and even recognise a song after hearing just a few notes.
