AIMCAT 2016 2nd RC Doubt
"After all, certain animals that have large and complex brains relative to their body size — such as mice and rats — but do not have language or, presumably, our level of self-awareness, also lose the memories they make in infancy."
Doesn't this sentence actually negate the point it is trying to make?
It was previously believed that infants lose memories because of a lack of sense of self, and lack of use of language and communication. The same is observed in mices and rats, who also do not have language. So does this not strenghten the previously believed theory? This proves that in any case where language is absent, memories will vanish more easily.
I feel instead of writing how mices and rats are similar to humans in the respect of losing memories of infant age, they should have written how they are similar in retaining memories of adult age, DESPITE a lack of language in mices and rats.
