Transcript of How Our Senses Provoke Memory

Specialized Neurons
The Auditory Complex

certain tastes and their trigger on memory
Sensory Receptors

Sounds are processed in the auditory complex this links to the emotional part of the brain through memories of sounds that are stored in the amagdalya
Mechanorecptors-movement,pressure , tension
Photorecptors- light
Chemoreceptors- chemicals
thermoreceptors- tempature
pain recptors- tissue damage

All take energy and convert into electrical energy to bring signal to nervous system

certain scents and their trigger on memory
- Olfactory nerve which is located next to the amygdala, the area of the brain that controls emotion as well as keeps emotional memory. The actual ability to smell is linked to memory. You must remember you have smelled something before you can connect it to visial information that occurs at the same time. SO scent is essentially a memory of a certain part of someones life. For example a person could hate the smell of flowers because in their memories they associate flowers with funerals triggering the emotion of disgust.
How Our Senses Provoke Memory
Sight is processed from the optic nerve to the visual cortex of the brain . The sight is remembered by the amagydala
The somatosensory system is a complex sensory system. It is made up of a number of different receptors, including thermoreceptors, photoreceptors, mechanoreceptors and chemoreceptors. It also comprises essential processing centres, or sensory modalities, such as propriception ,mechanoreception (touch), thermoreception (temperature), and nonciception (pain). The sensory receptors cover the skin and epithelial tissues, skeletal muscles, Bones and joints, internal organs, and the cardiovascular system.
So as you touch something, especially for a blind person the texture can trigger a memory in the brain. Mostly the texture or temperature of something can bring up a memory. But for someone who has vision touch isn't something that usually will bring up a memory.
