Recently I published a short review of the Disney movie, “Inside Out.” The movie examines the inner-workings of the brain, and in particular the core memories of a youngster named, Riley.

Core memories are the essence of what makes up an individual.

thThe movie also explains, in its animated form, how both long-term and short-term memories are stored, retrieved, and sometimes lost forever.

Although I watched the movie (twice) on Netflix, I’ve located it on the web for your easy access. I hope you will take the time to watch it. It’s fun … and informative!

Enjoy “Inside Out.”

SPEAK OUT! NewsBit . . . . . . . Electrical Stimulation of the Brain Improves Memory

Electrical Stimulation of the Brain Improves Memory

Newsboy th

 

Neuroscientists at Northwestern University have found that electrical stimulation of the brain results in long-term improvement of memory. The researchers applied magnetic pulses to generate an electrical current (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation or TMS) at specific areas of the skull to stimulate specific neurons near the surface of the brain. They were surprised to find that, while memory circuits are complex and involve some neurons deep in the brain, stimulating the accessible neurons near the surface of the brain stimulates the entire circuit. TMS does not require surgery, and, unlike a therapeutic drug, which would affect all parts of the brain, TMS can be used to target specific areas of the brain. The neuroscientists believe that electrical current induces better communication between neurons and stimulates the neuroplasticity of the brain, but the molecular mechanism is unknown.
