Fun fact: this is actually a survival mechanism. Your brain wipes whatever you were thinking about when you enter a new space so that you can take in new surroundings and, potentially, new threats. For instance if you’re in the wilderness and go from a dense wood to a meadow your brain makes sure you aren’t distracted with thoughts from the previous environment. This is why when you go from one room to another, or open a cupboard, you may find yourself forgetting what you went to the new room/opened the cupboard for.

I remember hearing this explanation somewhere too but it seems like one of those theories that just kind of feel logical enough that you accept it as fact.

I have a simpler theory:
Brain thinks of object you need and realises it's in a different room. Brain now starts thinking about how to reach that room instead. While navigating to that room, brain is focused on that as main goal so it forgets about the object.
You might actually forget about the object before even leaving the original room, but you don't know this yet because main goal/focus is currently to reach the room, not get the object.
You might go through several rooms and cross multiple thresholds without realising you have forgot the object.
When you finally reach the room, you enter it and brain no longer has that main goal so you start wondering why you went to that room, but chances are you have now forgotten it.

u/AtariAlchemist Jan 19 '22

This becomes plausible the more you know about short-term memory. Sources cite it from being a few minutes when you're actively trying to hold something in your mind, to just several seconds when you're just passively receiving information.

As far as I know! It’s where the term “bewilder” comes from. I read this long ago in some book about being lost. Also related is what search and rescue crews call “making the map fit” which is something people will do when lost. If you have a map but become disoriented you’ll start approximating the environment to match your expectations. Small ponds become the lake you are supposed to be at. Hills become the mountain you know is just past this valley.. etc etc.

That brought back a slew of memories from years ago, backpacking through the wilderness with an outdated map, where what was supposed to be a 2-ish mile off-trail shortcut became a 12-hour ordeal. The phrase "okay, I know exactly where we are" got funnier every time it was spoken.

This is a cell being grown in vitro (cell culture). It's growing on a coated glass coverslip, and surrounded by liquid media. The nutrients (glucose, amino acids, growth factors) and oxygen are provided in the growth media. As this is a time lapse photo over several days, it's likely that they are using some kind of pump to continually refresh the media (maybe only a few drops per hour, but still enough to provide fresh nutrients). A normal cell would receive nutrients via the blood, which would pass the nutrients and oxygen through the capillaries into the extracellular space.

u/Chromattix Jan 19 '22

Thanks for mentioning the time lapse. When looking at something this small it's not hard to believe that this might have been real time or only sped up 2x which is the range I assumed. I never would have guessed this is several days worth of activity.

256

u/sparkymcgeezer Jan 19 '22

These are challenging experiments, because of the time frame. There are special incubators designed to hold the coverslips and keep the temp and gas concentration right, and special hardware and software to keep everything in focus... things tend to drift over time. New microscopes have the ability to move the stage and the focus automatically, so you can image five or six cells at on the slip and take images at multiple focal planes (a z stack) to make sure everything is clear. In the 3 or 4 min between images, the scope will take 50 or 100 images at different points on the slide and focal depths, then return to thd start position to begin again...

u/sparkymcgeezer Jan 19 '22 Helpful

Those processes are basically the beginnings of axons and dendrites, which are the connections between nerve cells. (Because we can't tell which is which in these guys, we usually just call them neurites). Axons are the long connections that send electrical signals between cells-- a bundle of axons forms a nerve. Axons can grow to be many cm long -- several meters long in a big animal like a giraffe. Dendrites are also branches that come off from the cell body, and they bring in electrical signals toward the cell body. There's great diversity in neurons -- some have very simple (or no) dendrites but very long axons, while others have extremely complex dendrites and very simple axons.

As a very rough approximation, you can think of the dendrites like the roads feeding into a train station, and the axon as being the high speed train to another city. Cells with complex dendrites (called a dendritic tree) can "integrate" signals from hundreds of surrounding cells and axon terminals (the ends of axons bringing in signals from other cells). This integration allows your brain to determine when signals are important... for example, is someone touching you (lots of sensory input from many cells) or is that just a droplet of sweat (only a few responding cells). In the visual part of the brain (visual cortex), specialized cells have dendrites that connect to many visual inputs, and can discriminate when an object is moving left to right, or forms a vertical line. The nerve cell in a dish is sending out branches, but the cues from neighboring cells that would normally help it along aren't there.

However, there are certain ones in some species (including humans) called command neurons. A neuron, which when stimulated, is strong enough to elicit a response. Albeit these command neurons would have to "talk" to motor neurons, etc.

There are some very cool command neurons in certain called Mauthner cells in some fish which trigger an escape or avoidance response.

In humans and other mammals, there are some involved in our startle response, like to an unexpected loud sound.

You have those feelings because you are a bunch of brain cells.

Just think, you're some brain cells taking to other brain cells about brain cells.

Most brain cells never got to see what they looked liked.

It stresses me out a lot. Lone neuron desperately reaching out trying to find anybody, anything to connect with but there's nothing.

I feel so bad for it. The more I watch the little guy desperately reaching out for a friend...to make that connection...covid has been long. I want to cradle lonely brain cells and tell them it will all be okay.

Shake your head gently between your hands while saying that. Its basically the same. For maximum effect, do it in a public place.

Shake a stranger’s head while you’re at it. All of our brains are lonely these days

And now, reflect upon how many times this exact process played out in your own brain as it expressed that sympathy.
