There is something excellent about our memories, it is the epitome of knowledge that we hold in our life which takes us from the euphoric heights to the sorrowful lows. When someone says how much they love us, to winning a game and achieving something special, or even a dying man remembers when his mom told him, “Son, I love you and you’re the apple of my eye”. Whether we have done well, or just have some regrets. This is interesting, isn’t it, that we are so focused on our thoughtful memories throughout the day, and it keeps carrying us. Let’s discuss it in detail, while others are scrolling down their social media posts, let’s quickly read something that can help us balance well in life.
Worth talking about something that has value. There are things we experience, and based on our memory we can judge things well. For example, would you like to dine in the finest hotel beside a large stinky sump? OR, you mind going to a small place where the aesthetic is simple and beautiful? After all, we all know what is good, just that thoughts of ours have to be stable enough to make the right decisions to chose that good and stay with it.
Memories are precious, they start to form when we are in our mother’s womb. Thus, it become important for our mothers to be healthy, and the same health, the right balance of mental, physical, and emotional part of mother help the child grow.
In this memory series, let us look at memory in general.
Memory is the faculty by which our brain stores and remembers the information. In our human brain memories are stored in a fashionable way. The brain contains the nerve cells, these are the ones that can receive and send neural signals, through which our brain directs us to behave or do the works.
Memory scientifically is of two types, one is short-term memory and the other one is long-term memory. Short term memory is handled by the frontal part of the brain. Again, long-term memory is of two types; implicit memory and other one is explicit memory. When we have explicit memory, it is divided into the episodic (events happened to you) memory and the semantic (general knowledge) memory. Then comes the one which has motor neuron signals, which are learned behaviors, habits, and skills, these are implicit, divided into priming and procedural (motor) memory. In our brain, we have few specific parts which help in this whole process, the hippocampus, amygdala, neocortex, basal ganglia, cerebellum, and prefrontal cortex.
This series of photos shows the short term memory of walking by a road. Then a semantic memory of how evening traffic lit up in colors, also a memory of vising a park, and the episodic memory of visiting a theme park. A procedural memory of playing chess, and finally, the priming memory of perceiving the world.
As we begin a journey to 2021, I want to thank all of you, my readers as well ones who glean through these blogs once in a while. It is so much important to take time to communicate with each other, and which year could be better than with a pandemic when all wants to be connected and have a safe refuge.
I just wanna say that the door of possibilities is great and renowned. As time and the tide has turned the page, I am thankful to God to make it this far. Few specific mentions would make this small welcome note to our journey together great.
I. I need the hand of my God and my Savior Jesus Christ to a meaningful year ahead. II. The journey of this year looks great when I have a purpose in direction. Being a writer and being able to express thoughts well, is nothing short of a privilege. III. Mention of family and friends around make this stronger and much better. A helping is better than going in despair while nobody to call upon. IV. A workplace or a place of study is very important too.
In a world full of new technologies and screen time-sharing, it becomes even more imminent that I should thank everyone for taking the time to read. Also, it is important too to reflect upon the things we learn on a day-to-day basis and keep a track of our progress.
