Act of remembering. Artwork representing how an object seen by the eyes is remembered by the brain. The object here (a red coffee mug) is shown in the brain at right. Various brain disorders, such as strokes, can disrupt memory circuits, as represented by the broken coffee mug. The brain also has circuits that help distinguish between memories, fantasies and planning future actions. This accounts for the deja vu sensation that something seems familiar.
