Thanks for the memories: Many of us can 'get lost' in vivid memories - now scientists have proved that they are almost exactly the same as the real thing

'Transported back in time': Brain scans show that recalling vivid memories is almost exactly the same as the original experience

Scientists have found a way to "read" dreams, a study suggests. Researchers in Japan used MRI scans to predict the images that people were seeing as they entered into an early stage of sleep. Writing in the journal Science, they reported that they could do this with 60% accuracy.

This EM image reveals a synapse between an axon and dendrite. Note the presence of numerous synaptic vesicles and mitochondria in the axon. What triggers fusion of the synaptic vesicles with the plasma membrane? Two myelinated axons are visible on the left.
