New insights into the way the brain combines memories to solve problems

Humans have the ability to creatively combine their memories to solve problems and draw new insights, a process that depends on memories for specific events known as episodic memory. But although episodic memory has been extensively studied in the past, current theories do not easily explain how people can use their episodic memories to arrive at these novel insights. Results from a team of neuroscientists and artificial intelligence researchers at DeepMind, Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE), publishing in the journal Neuron on September 19, provide a window into the way the human brain connects individual episodic memories to solve problems. For example, imagine you see a woman driving a car on your street. The next day, you see a man driving the exact same car on your street. This might trigger the memory of the woman you saw the day before, and you might reason that the pair live together, given that they share a car. The researchers propose a novel brain mechanism that would allow retrieved memories to trigger the retrieval of further, related memories in this way. This mechanism allows the retrieval of multiple linked memories, which then enable the brain to create new kinds of insights like these.

Magic is back

Fly agaric (Amanita muscaria)

Svartskog, Norway

After the driest summer on record, autumn has brought some hefty downpours. Yet this has not at all replenished the record low ground water levels, nor increased the flow of rivers and streams.

It is so dry that even though the last rainfall was just a few days ago, the mushrooms that have popped out of the ground have become dry and have a stunted growth.

Yet there are a few spots that were absolutely amazing last autumn, that have some really amazing specimens like this one just coming out of the ground. This is in a very dark location under dense spruce, and there is no vegetation – not even mosses growing here, which makes the beautifully colored fly agaric stand out like a manifestation of magic.

As the days are still much warmer than normal, these mushrooms grow incredibly fast. Just before encountering this one I checked on another specimen I had encountered the day before to capture its beautiful appearance before it opened up. But opened up it was! The day before it was just like this one, and the next day it was fully grown!

Autumn is still very young, and if more rainfall come along, the autumn might be a great one for mushrooms, but I think it will be a long time before any can compare to that of the autumn of 2017.
