How Art Can Help Us Recall Emotional Memories

Memories come back to us through emotional experiences. That’s how Christina Muscatello, founder of the Memory Maker Project, thinks of it. She explained it like this: you hear a song and it makes you feel something. Then, you think back to your middle school dance, and the first time you slow danced. “You would have never had a moment to access that memory without having that emotional tie,” Muscatello said.
