KUSA - A new study shows that taking pictures to capture the moment may actually worsen your memory.

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.
