Research into the relationship between memory and the brain is offering a different insight into how these work together. It is commonly though that memory is stored ‘in the brain’. Despite this, the brain has been described by neuroscientists as ‘a transmitter and receiver of signals’ like a computer. As such, some are opting to the ‘possibility that memory is stored on a cloud similar to that which modern technology uses’. From this, your brain transmits and receives the signals to retrieve the memory.
