‘Dark Matter’ of Memory to Unlock Secrets to Learning, Brain Disorders, Study Says

It’s common knowledge among learners and brain scientists that new memories such as names and faces are placed in the working memory. Neurons continue to function and gauge the importance of the new memory you have. If, say, the said memory is important, it’s permanently encoded in the long-term memory. Interestingly, where does memory go in between? Scientists may have finally figured out the answer.According to Science Magazine, a research team has shown that such memories can be resurrected from this “limbo”-like state. Their new study points toward a new form of working memory, which is called “prioritized long-term memory.”Their study suggests that this memory exists without elevated neural activity. This is consistent with other recent work, which indicates that this information can be somehow held among the synapses that connect…
