How Memories Are Stored In The Brain: Study Develops a New Theory


Research at the University of Kent has developed a new revolutionary theory, namely the MeshCODE theory, for understanding brain and memory function. This discovery is considered to be the beginning of a new understanding of brain function and in treating brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

The researchers explain that the new theory has been developed to highlight how the brain works as an organic supercomputer, running a complex binary code with neuronal cells working as a mechanical computer. The study also explains how a vast network of information-storing memory molecules operates as switches and how they are built into each and every synapse of the brain. This, in turn, represents a complex binary code. It recognizes the physical spot for data storage in the brain and recommends that the memories are written in the shape of molecules in the synaptic scaffolds.
