By the time most people are 25, they have made the most important memories of their lives, according to new research from the University of New Hampshire. The research team, led by psychology professor David Pillemer, found that when older adults were asked to tell their life stories, they overwhelmingly highlighted the central influence of life transitions in their memories. Many of these transitions, such as marriage and having children, occurred early in life.
