WHERE MEMORY MAY RESIDE IN THE HUMAN BRAIN

31 July 2019

Much research has given me the confidence to take a guess and explain why I think the fatty tissue in the brain and fatty acids hold the key to memory.

•   Firstly, at least a few axons / neurons terminate there
•   Secondly, 60 percent of the brain is comprised of this
•   Thirdly, it does not act an energy store like we see other fat cells do
•   Fourthly, significant hormones like cortisol and endorphins are fat soluble
•   Finally, fat cells may be independently interconnected have their own signalling network

If it is discovered that memory is not held here then the composition and mass of the fatty acids could be the key.

I assert also that memory is incremental and not comprised of only "still" images (or facts) only; they are stores of motor programs  (our experiences) and are associated with mirror neuronsWiki.

I also suspect that glia and lipid droplets are involved in memory processes via lipid signalling, a processes that i call "lipoplasticity".
