Living in the Matrix requires less brain power

An Intricate Network: New Research Is Uncovering a More Complex Path for Memory. New findings reveal memory networks more intricate than previously believed. Understanding these pathways may help develop ways to enhance learning, mitigate memory disorders such as Alzheimer's or guard against memory loss from aging.
