Scientists Measure Memory With The Film Memento

News   Feb 22, 2018 | Original Story from Aalto University

 
Brain Mechanisms Underlying Cue-based Memory Investigated Using Film Memento

Marked red are the brain regions which process the clue-providing key scenes, both before and while they occur. Anticipatory activity appears on the visual cortex up to eight seconds before the scene begins. During the scenes, there’s fingerprint-like activity in the prefrontal lobe and parietal lobe, both believed to be connected to memory retrieval and reinterpretation of previously seen events.
