Neurons can show history-dependent behavior by responding differently as a function of prior input, and this plasticity of nerve cells and synapses is the basis of memory. The formation of memory traces is shown to be essential in the formation of long-term memory. this book attempts to lay biological foundations for this phenomenon through a novel mechanism termed the "Molecular-Grid Model" that may explain how biological electrochemical events occurring at the neuron interact to generate thoughts.
