The most beautiful thing you will ever see!

Every memory you have of your childhood, your first crush, your parent’s face, is all thanks to this process in your brain. Below is a video of a mouse’s brain taken by scientists at the University of Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

Here’s how it works… Memories are made by messenger ribonucleic acids (mRNA) that encode the protein β-actin. The protein, which shapes and structures the neurons in your brain, iss then traced as they stimulate the hippocampus- the area of the brain that is the most efficient at storing memories.

The awesome thing is that your brain is doing this right now…
