What makes a memory

When an event takes place in your life, your brain will “encode” that memory with the information it receives through the senses. Like the smell of popcorn brings up memories of going to the movies for some people.
Once a memory is encoded, it is stored as a short term or long term memory in our brains. Emotionally charged memories will receive priority encoding over others.

That is why looking at a video or picture you haven’t seen in a long time will stir up emotions. As you are bringing those memories up from storage, you are also bringing back to your attention, or reliving, the emotions that surrounded the creation of that special memory.
