Memory – How could evolution produce this?

Isn’t it amazing that we can recall information and memories at will? How are memories stored exactly? and how are they recalled?
The theory of evolution proposes that everything including memory is a product of natural selection and mutations. As you read about how memory works please ask yourself the question: “Could evolution really produce this?”

Memory generation


Information from all 5 senses (sight,hearing,touch,smell,taste) is constantly entering the brain. This information is remembered very briefly and is called sensory memory. Experts believe that certain parts of the brain are responsible for analyzing the information from these various sensory inputs and deciding if it’s worth remembering. If they are, they may become part of your long-term memory.
It seems that anything from our sensory memory that may be interesting is automatically available for recall for up to a minute after creation.
The more we think about a short-term memory the more likely that it will be transferred into long-term memory.
Remember when you learned to ride a bike or tie your shoe laces? It got easier each time right? The more you repeat the task the easier it becomes even to the point where you hardly have to think about it at all.
How could evolution produce a system that can understand the information coming from our senses and automatically store it as a memory?


Memory Storage


It is not known exactly how memories are stored.. all we can say is that a memory is stored using the language of electricity and chemicals between groups of neurons in the brain.
The storage capacity of the human brain is virtually limitless. It was estimated that the number of patterns nerve cells could form was 10 to the power of 800 (An incredibly massive number)!
How could evolution produce a system that can store information as electricity and chemical patterns?


Memory recall


Researchers at Princeton university have discovered that memory does not work like a file cabinet or a computer hard drive where each file is stored in it’s place. Instead they discovered that there was a high correlation between the initial cerebral activity pattern (generating a memory) and the later cerebral activity pattern (recalling a memory) and that each memory is a very complex combination of reactions from lots of different parts of the brain. In other words the brain recreates the brain activity from when the memory was created. Kind of like time travel!
How could evolution produce a system that knows where and how to retrieve the stored memory?
How could evolution produce a system that can recreate the brain activity at the moment the memory was generated?


Conclusion


Memory is a highly complex process but luckily for us it works automagically. It’s hard to see how memory could have come about via evolution.
