The Case of the Bonsai Manager
What is the brain's e-mail id? BRIM, says R. Gopalakrishnan in The Case of the Bonsai Manager, from Penguin (http://www.penguinbooksindia.com/) . He explains the acronym as `brain's remote implicit memory'.
Remote, because it can stretch `very deep into your psyche and childhood - your village, your grandfather's house, the smells of mother's cooking, and the stories that granny told you'. Remote memory is durable, which is why you can often `recall early life events with great clarity'.
