Transcript of Memory within the heart

SA node
How do you lay and recieve memories?
Your brain is made up of 100 billion neurons
Communicate through thousands of connections – synapses

How are connections between neurons strengthened?
Memories are formed when certain connections are strengthened.
There is no single 'store' in your brain for long-term memories
When you use your working memory, you have instantly to retrieve many different memories and keep them all in your mind at once

Memory and the Heart
Cellular Memory


Heart requires functional memory


How does this relate to our faith?
Above all else,
guard your heart
, for everything you do flows from it.
Proverbs 4:23

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrated even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow;
it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12

How can you who are evil say anything good?
For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
Matthew 12:34

heart is deceitful above all things
and beyond cure. Who can understand it?
Jeremiah 17:9
