Research from the introduction to cognitive psychology: processes and disorders Chapter 1 claims that in order to remember and learn, we must endure some neurological changes. A synapse (the gap which neurons travel through) that has been frequently crossed in the past will be more easily crossed by future signal meaning that the next time the neurons are fired at the same time, less resistance will follow which leads to inevitably faster recall of memory and knowledge. A cell assembly is a group of neurons could represent a particular stimulus as the neurons have adapted to a certain pattern that symbolises a specific stimuli, which then accounts for how thoughts and memories become associated with one another in memory.
