Brain Science — Mental Health of Cells, Molecules, Thoughts and Memory

Brain model via JEMDP

There are two categories of mental health. There is the cellular and molecular part. There is the thought and memory aspect.

There are two sides to addiction and substance abuse. There is the cellular and molecular division. There is the thought and memory section.

Cellular and molecular builds what is experienced as thought and memory.

When someone engages in an activity with no seeming reward — making it feel repulsive — it is a function of a state in the memory where the store of that thing is refusing to go into a group.

If someone is also in a situation where there is reward in the brain, it is a preference and prioritization situation where the store has liberty.

Though cellular and molecular activities underlay every process, they construct thought and memory within, as the same thing used for experiential interactions.

Cellular and molecular neuroscience has been helpful for advances, but the mechanism of what molecules do — in general are elusive.

There have been several kinds of therapies that help for mental health, but it is often said that how they work is unknown, or say the cellular and molecular mechanism of how ecotherapy, viewing art, walking or others help is unknown.

Though for individuals they get better by perceiving that something is different with thought and memory.

So if cellular and molecular paths remain difficult to understand, how about thought and memory?

Thoughts too are complex. They cannot be displayed by neuroimaging. Though brain-machine interfaces access some thoughts in cortical areas for speech and motor aid, the expanse of thought remains elusive.

Memory has several labels. There are even assumptions of what a memory trace or store is — engram. But in what form does the memory store information?

This question is similar to asking in what form is sand, if it is solid, liquid or gas, not about the trace or unit of sand being an engram, when the form is not known.

How can thought and memory be understood to reshape what mental health is, and how addiction takes hold towards better care?

What is the relationship between sensory inputs and thoughts?

How does thought travel in the memory, or what happens in the process of thinking, since it is common to think what is known?

All sensory inputs converge in the thalamus except smell, converging at the olfactory bulb. It is where they are processed, before relay to the cerebral cortex for interpretation.

Sensory integration or processing, theoretically is into a uniform unit or quantity — thought or a form of thought. This becomes the version of senses existing for use and interpretation in the cerebral cortex.

Interpretation is hypothesized to be knowing, feeling and reaction.

Memory — or locations to know — stores thought or a form of thought.

Stores contain the least possible unique information, but whatever is common between one or more are grouped. In activities, stores relay to groups to give what is useable.

There is always one most active store in the memory, while others are passive. Passive does not mean lack of motion or activity, but does not take precedence except something changes.

It is after memory locations that the thought goes to the destination to feel fear, which then follows a reaction — parallel or perpendicular.

In the memory, all senses have representative of stores and groups. It is in the memory where equivalents interchange, via their stores and groups that make thought and memory in mental health and addiction have influence. Building this into a model would reshape mental health and addiction care.
