How Our Brains Make Us Forget
How Left-Right Brain Handoffs Happen Without A Hitch
"People experience a smooth and seamless visual world despite information quickly being transferred back and forth between both hemispheres of the brain."
Anatomy of the Brain
"Nothing in the world can compare with the human brain. This mysterious three-pound organ controls all necessary functions of the body, receives and interprets information from the outside world, and embodies the essence of the mind and soul."
New Neurons Take Baby Steps in the Adult Brain
"In experiments with mice, scientists from Johns Hopkins' Institute for Cell Engineering have discovered the steps required to integrate new neurons into the brain's existing operations."
New brain cells erase old memories
"For anyone fighting to save old memories, a fresh crop of brain cells may be the last thing they need."
Hippocampal Neurogenesis Regulates Forgetting During Adulthood and Infancy
"Throughout life, new neurons are continuously added to the dentate gyrus. As this continuous addition remodels hippocampal circuits, computational models predict that neurogenesis leads to degradation or forgetting of established memories."
