I read an article on the BBC a few days ago about an ongoing experiment they're doing on worms. Basically what happened is that they trained a specific type of worm to learn where food was and then they chopped it in half. The portion that lost it's head regrew it and they noticed that even with a new one it could still recall where to find food without any issue.

Doubtful it would ever work in any sort of capacity on humans but it's fascinating that there all of these different things going on that we were otherwise unaware of.


The idea of having false memories imprinted though... that's a little scary.

is this a new study? because a similar study was conducted in 1955 with planarian worms that has since been discredited
Planarian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

the idea of "genetic memory" is a common trope in sci fi

Brand new study from Tufts University in the USA.

It's just a theory that it's the brain retaining information as opposed to chemical cues, but it's still an interesting theory nonetheless.

Ive got to read this article in dept later on buts its amazing scientist did this to a mammal. I think it was in the Johnny Mnemonic film where the guy uploads Karate into his brain... or maybe that was the Matrix.


Apparently our brain and memories are not always stored in our skull but could be in our organs. Theres also a story of a guy who has no brain mass in his head but he lives a normal life.

Articles in spoiler
Spoiler!



edit - looking to trade riding to moon memory for horizontal date with Angelina Jolie!

"genetic memory" just sounds like instincts


i remember reading a while back that each time you recall a memory, the electric pulse follows a different set of neurons so that your engram is changed. So each time you recall something, a detail of that memory is changed so that over time, the more times you recall a memory, the more far off it is from what actually happened....

so your most precious memories, the ones you think of the most, are essentially almost completely false... it never happened the way you remember it

the original concept of genetic memory (which is now disproven) was that planarian worms were taught to navigate a maze. they were chopped up, and fed to other worms who supposedly demonstrated the ability to also complete the maze.
