    That is funny! I love Mr. Happy Feet.

    Mo, I was having a discussion on another blog and an interesting question has come up. We all seem to remember traumatic events with more detail than ordinary memories, and some people remember details down to the clothes they wore during a crisis. There’s also the traumatic flashback that can be debilitating. Is there some biochemical link between adrenaline and memory or is there some other mechanism at work here?

    There is some work being done on this subject. See my old post about the neurogenetics of traumatic memories.

    Thanks, Mo. I knew you were the right person to ask!
