“They form the initial patterns, but don’t rehearse them,” said Tsien. “Their tones are flat, the association is poor, while everything we register in the healthy brain is associative.”  To illustrate just how flat, Postdoctoral Fellow Hui Kuang assigned musical notes to the memory activity  of each, which resulted in random noise by the NMDA  knockout mice compared to a dynamic rhythm from normal mice.

Well-formed memories sound like music; ill-formed memories sound like noise (or metalcore).
