Can you remember any event that happened before age 4?
How comes children can remember events that happened before age 4 but as adults are unable to recall memories from their youngest years (4 and before)?
Yes. I can remember my Mother and Father fighting (Arguing) very vividly.
I was three years old when JFK was shot and killed. My mum was doing the ironing as the news came through on the radio, and she started to cry. At first I thought she'd burnt her hand. I remember hiding a newspaper from her a couple of days later, because it had a picture of the man who made her cry.
Even at such a young age, I knew a terrible thing had happened because of how everyone reacted. I think that's why it stuck in my mind.
I remember, at the age of 9 months, two events.
The first event was moving from 110th street in Manhattan to the Bronx and my mother wheeling me while I lay in the carriage, face up. I noticed the park benches hadn't had the wood rails in place yet, just the concrete stands.
The second event was being held by my mother while she watched Walt Disney's Fantasia. These events were verified by my mother, much to her surprise, when I spoke of them when I was 20 years old. I am now 63.

At what age do you have your earliest memory of? I recall a couple events hen I was only 2 years old. I have been told by some that it is not possible to remember things from such an early age. I have also had people tell me that they recalled things from an even earlier age.
