Why arguing with your wife is useless! Women remember details like & # 39; who said what & # 39; and & # 39; where missing objects are & # 39; better than men, research shows
- Females apparently have a head start when it comes to episodic memory
- Episodic memory is the ability to remember autobiographical events

Women remember better when it comes to remembering details, according to new research.
Females apparently have the head start when it comes to remembering features of a conversation or where missing objects can be because they do better with episodic memory.
Episodic memory is the ability to remember autobiographical events, such as what happened last week or whether the cat was fed this morning.

The research also indicates that women are better at remembering faces and remembering sensory memories such as scents
As one of the most sensitive memory systems, it can be affected by lack of sleep, depression or aging.
The research also indicates that women are better at remembering faces and remembering sensory memories such as scents.
Martin Asperholm, lead author of the Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, said: & # 39; The results show that there is a small female benefit in episodic memory and that benefit varies depending on which materials should be remembered. & # 39;
The research group based their findings on 617 studies that were conducted between 1973 and 2013 and in which more than 1.2 million participants participated.
But researchers say that memories take many forms and that men sometimes even have the advantage.
For example, a man will sooner find his way back to the car because he is good at remembering information about spatial processing.
The researchers concluded that the cognitive differences between men and women are small, but hoped that their mega study would raise new questions about memory and gender.
