Scientists Identify the Memory Storing Neurons in Humans

Scientists at Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science have pinpointed the specific neurons responsible for memory. To locate these neurons, neuro engineers did an in-depth study of the patients with electrode implants in the brain. To derive the result, the researcher took the help of virtual reality technology. They examined the patient’s brain activities while they were looking at VR memory video. The study allowed the viewers to
