Lots of scientists would like to know more
about how the brain stores memory!
But I've found a nice site that will tell me
what's known now:
brain memory nowadays
Ok, it says short term memories sit in the front
of the brain. The long term memories are stored
deeper in the brain, in the hippocampus.
Different memories of the same event, such as the
smells, sounds, and sights, all come together in
the long term memory. That's why hearing a song
can remind you of where you were and how you were
feeling when you first heard the song.
To be strong, a memory needs specific brain
cells to be well connected to each other.
Sometimes there needs to be even a specific
protein molecule to keep the memory strong.
