haven’t we all heard this claim before?

MIT neuroscientists explain deja vu

i am certain that i have heard claims to scientifically explain this eerie sensation that is ironically so banal, but apparently “forming memories of places and contexts engages a part of the brain called the hippocampus.” duh, but these guys “have been exploring how each of the three hippocampal subregions — the dentate gyrus, CA1 and CA3 — contribute to learning and memory”

yeah, yeah, yeah

but honestly, i was disappointed by this guy’s weak-ass example:

“[He] described his own occasional experience of finding the airport in a new city uncannily familiar. That occurs, he said, because of the similarity of modules — gates, chairs, and ticket counters — that comprise airports worldwide. It is only by seeking unique cues that the specific airport can be identified”

of course all airports look similar — there are entire international agencies whose raison d’etre is to ensure just that, so we cattle don’t get lost and so planes don’t need to figure a dozen sets of signage

duh — that ain’t deja vu

i recently experienced a chain of events (noticing a scientific article) that motivated me to post to a blog i maintain and while i was composing the the post i noticed the strange sensation that i have done this before.

weird, hunh?
