WASHINGTON: Researchers recently discovered that electrical activity in the brain is produced rhythmically by neurons. This implies a direct link between brain waves and memory—something which was not known previously.
What causes these rhythmic signals, also referred to as oscillations, was one of the unsolved questions in neuroscience. Simply recalling experiences has the power to trigger them, according to University of Arizona researchers, much more so than actually going through the experience.
Theta oscillations, which appear in the hippocampus region of the brain during activities like exploration, navigation, and sleep, were of particular interest to the researchers, whose findings were published in the journal Neuron.
The brain’s capacity to recall the past is significantly influenced by the hippocampus.
