More than two dozen adults were told to take pictures of a few dozen artifacts at they toured a museum.
The next day when researchers asked them questions about what they say, they had a more difficult time trying to remember the pieces they photographed.
9NEWS health reporter Dr. John Torres says to keep this in mind for the upcoming holiday season.
