Brain Waves: Have Scientists Found The “Grandmother Neuron”?

Have you ever wondered why sometimes when you bump into strangers, you feel like you’ve seen their face before? Or maybe you’ve noticed that you’re better at remembering people’s faces than a friend of yours? We discuss these on our monthly Brain Waves segment, as we look at a recent study that found new memory cells linking face perception to our long-term memory, what scientists say is very close to a “grandmother neuron”. And as always to shed more light on this is neurogeneticist Dr Azlina Ahmad Annuar.
