Memories are generally understood to be encoded within networks of neurons, and not within neurons themselves. New neurons are certainly useful, but they are not necessary to store new memories. Indeed, the hippocampus is extremely plastic, meaning that the connection strength between different neurons can change rapidly, and sometimes, new connections are ...

It appears that they tested all of the participants (control & stress) at the same time: Memory was assessed 24 h after learning. According to the model by Joels and colleagues (2006), it can be predicted that learning under stress enhances memory, in particular for stress context-related information Twenty-four hours after learning, ...

Memory in the brain isn't super-well understood, so going to the level of "data-structures" isn't really possible with purely biological models. Not that a purely biolgocial description would be very useful anyways. When people ask how the brain works, they typically don't want to be told "molecule A interacts with molecule B, which triggers molecule C". ...

The brain structure for memory, association, learning and thinking works more like a network of weighted, linked nodes. in machine learning and related fields, artificial neural networks (ANNs) are computational models inspired by an animal's central nervous systems (in particular the brain) [...] Artificial neural networks are generally presented as ...

This is what I do to store something in the long term memory. 1) Place it in the short term memory (those methods depend on the material). -Use mnemonic memory techniques. -Repeat the facts in different order. -Relate the facts to something that you already know. -Organize the facts in a logical order (order improves memory). -Try to find semantic meaning ...

Learning is a very complex process, do not expect to find precise answers like “5 exercises are required to learn a new subject”. There are many factors that affect learning, just to name a few: Your existing knowledge. Your engagement with the subject. How you learn. Deep Vs shallow processing. The complexity of the subject. Your personal characteristics ...
