A “core memory” is a reference from the Pixar film Inside Out. Core memories are created when a person experiences a certain event that defines one of their behavioral traits. They’re stored inside the brain, in glowing orbs.
“But the really important ones are here. I don't want to get too technical, but these are called Core Memories. Each one came from a super important moment in Riley's life, like when she first scored a goal. That was so amazing! And each core memory powers a different aspect of Riley's personality. Like Hockey Island.”
―Joy, opening narration

Core memory (aka. magnetic-core memory, ferrite-core memory) is a type of non-volatile random access computer memory, that was popular before Pixar even existed.
