Seahorses (Two for Tuesday)

Hello Everyone. It is time for another Two For Tuesday. Today I have some seahorses:

 

Part 2:

Did you know the hippocampus (small organ in the brain that is part of the limbic system) is shaped like a seahorse? Well not exactly – but close (and this next image has exaggerated this likeness just a bit).ย 

 

Also – here is a snippet from Breaking Bad about memories and the hippocampus:

And speaking of Breaking Bad – and thinking of Walter White (the chemist) –ย  let’s end this post with a comic of two old atoms talking:

    1. well I guess it depends on the angle – and the last time I looked inside a brain I saw more of a fish – totally kidding – lol – but in that image they really made the seahorse pop – eh?

  1. I must say, your two seahorses sure are pretty! Hmm, so the hippocampus is shaped like a seahorse, huh? Is that why I sometimes feel like my brain is swimming? LOL! Just kidding! Although I do think there are days when I relate to your atoms! ๐Ÿ˜†

  2. Relational memory is amazing. The limbic system is amazing. Brains are awesome. Smells are a big trigger for me. I feel happy in my heart now, thanks โค

  3. I’m not sure which of the 2 seahorses at the beginning I like more. I love the simple beauty of the one fashioned on a plain piece of wood, and yet the 2nd one has bling. Bling is always good ๐Ÿ™‚
