How come our brain work so sharp?
« on: 30/01/2010 14:07:35 »
Now that's 100% true ;)

omid's second cousin told omid that when her son was only few months old she find some thieves barged into her house.

The only precious thing she had that time was her gold necklace, she left her son on a chair and put her necklace into the nest of a bird on the tree in her garden.

After the thieves were gone she forgot about her necklace and try to find it inside the house but couldn't remembered anything, after some time when her son was ten years old he took her mother to the tree and showed her the necklace.

So omid's question is that which cells of his brain worked so sharp that he could remember an incident took place when he was only few months old????????????



omid thinking........................... ::) ::) ::)

 I don't know but i know that our eidetic memory (visual) can be very strong and does not need words. Words we learn to use, just as the brain learns to sort visual impressions into meaningful 'gestalt's' but the visual sorting comes before we learn to speak.

So maybe he had a very strong emotional memory to the situation combined with a visual impression making him remember the tree?

why would he wait till he was 10yo to retrieve it? 

Actually his mother told him about the incident and only then he remembered, otherwise omid doesn't think he could've ever done that ::)
