Memory storage
#1
Hey there,

I am new here. - Even when I type this, my brain is processing my typing. By processing I mean, (a) Make sense of what I want to say (b) pull out from my vocab store the appropriate words in the this current language © form sentences with the hope that everybody understands (d) direct my fingers to type them.... and so on..

This is due to memory - right from the letters, words, sentences, grammar, etc. to some complex understandings of how people might react after reading this - how their brains will take what my brain thinks, based on past reactions recorded.

My brain is still unable to come up with the right set of words to describe what I intend to ask.

This conversatoin between Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi addresses the same question -

Where and how is memory stored - at the cellular level? Will our memory let us find out? Huh

A scientific paper on how memory might be persisted in the brain can be found here. And somewhat simpler to common man writeup here. This could answer the first question on how the memory is stored in the brain ( human or other animals), but how it is retracted intelligently is not answered here.
Indians today are governed by two different ideologies. Their political ideal set in the preamble of the Constitution affirms a life of liberty, equality and fraternity. Their social ideal embodied in their religion denies them. - Ambedkar
