Tracking the memory trace
... formation follows a dynamic pattern, allowing for retrieval
from different areas of the brain, depending on when an organism needs to remember, said a researcher at Baylor College of Medicine. That is what Dr. Ron L. Davis, professor of molecular and cellular biology at BCM, theorizes, based on his most rece...

Researchers develop new method for studying 'mental time travel'
...the pictures. This supports the theory that memory retrieval
is a form of mental time travel. In addition, by measuring second-by-second changes in how well participants were recapturing their previous brain state, the researchers were able to predict what kind of item the subjects would recall next, several ...
