According to the researchers, time cells in the human brain are “multi-dimensional”, capable of encoding information in relation to time but also responding to different kinds of sensory information or stimuli.
It’s possible, the team thinks, that the multi-dimensional behavior of these time neurons might be what records the ‘what’, ‘where’, and ‘when’ of experiences, stitching elements together to make up coherent memories from a jumble of inputs.
“The phenomenon of subjective ‘mental time travel’ is a cornerstone of episodic memory,” the researchers say.

A crystal is a solid whose atoms or molecules are regularly arranged in a particular structure. If one looks at the arrangement with a microscope, one discovers an atom or a molecule always at the same intervals. It is similar with space-time crystals: however, the recurring structure exists not only in space, but also in time. The smallest components are constantly in motion until, after a certain period, they arrange again into the original pattern.

Decades of science and a whole host of historical luminaries have all come to the same conclusion: if your work involves your brain, then the right answer is just four hours.
Scientists from the University of Queensland, Australia, have used single particles of light (photons) to simulate quantum particles travelling through time. They showed that one photon can pass through a wormhole and then interact with its older self. Their findings were published in Nature Communications. The source of this time travel conundrum comes from what are […]
