Memories in the brain might be stored differently than thought.

Memories may be stored differently than previously thought, allowing for restoration of memories in patients with Alzheimer’s.

Professor David Glanzman from UCLA thinks memories in the brain might not be stored at the synapse, as previously thought. Instead, he and his team believe information stored in the brain might be in the nuclei of neurons, meaning that somehow restoring damaged synapses could restore memories in people with Alzheimer’s.

Some of the conclusions are speculative at this point, but aside from assisting Alzheimer’s patients, any advance in our understanding of how the brain functions increases the possibility of someday replicating our consciousness virtually.
