I'm working on a project and I've been doing research about memory recall and I haven't found a lot of info on it. I've found info on how memories are formed. A study talks about how memories form in different parts of the brain and play back like a streaming video. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/...01507/the-neuroscience-recalling-old-memories They had people think about Obama in the kitchen with a hammer and found out each of these things are represented in the brain in 3 different areas. An area for Obama, an area for the hammer and an area for the kitchen. What I can't find information on is how does the recall process get started. For instance, if I want to recall a memory from the Army, how does the brain know which memory I want to recall or does it know? How does it differentiate between a memory from boot camp, a memory of repelling from helicopters or AIT graduation?
