New science suggests why memories can be so powerful

When the brain remembers something, it's stored in the same region that's active at the time of the experience, according to a University of Pennsylvania study (reported by the NY Times). This means memories are not transported to a storage section (like a computer's hard drive) elsewhere in the brain.

Researchers recently discovered this when, for the first time, they "recorded individual brain cells in the act of summoning a spontaneous memory."

This shows why memories can be such powerful things. Since memories are stored in the same place that's active at the time of an experience, "remembering is a lot like doing."

Pound360 is going to remember the last time we went to the beach now and see if we get a tan.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
