    Spike's Caudal Nucleus and a Dragon's natural HyperThymesia

    Here are some medical terms required to understand some dialogue that'll be coming at the end of "The Wyrm Has Turned"

    The caudate nucleus is a nucleus located within the basal ganglia of the brains of many animal species. The caudate nucleus is an important part of the brain's learning and memory system.

    Join me in Google Docs! the plot thickens

    I'm putting together the beginnings of my bildungsroman story!

    That'll lead into Draconomachi!

    The part you are about to read is the opening frame story that leads to the narrative of Spikes life up to his 22 year.

    A Pony Nightmare Spurs me to Write

    I've focusing on school and writing less than usual,but I just took a nap and had a freakish pony nightmare.

    It was mostly incoherent but it both disturbed and entertained me.

    I now am back online and writing. I can take this short break from school work.

    here's the closest thing that I can use to describe the nightmare.

    It's terrifying,I know

    Human Irony

    Once the most militarily and industrially advanced countries in the world gained nuclear capabilities, every motion of one made toward another has been that of averting war out of fear of mutually assured destruction. But here on the internet, where the average person is armed with only the tips of their fingers in a zone full of knowledge to explore, they go so far out of their way to harm

    Literature vs Fiction and WRITER'S BLOCK! RAWR!

    I'm quitting work to write ponies.....

    LOL Jk.

    I'm resigning from work because schools starting up again and my schedule is wholly incompatible.

    but I will have some days off before classes that will be conducive to writing.

    now where was I?

    oh yes:


    Fiction is any work portraying imaginary characters and events, as a novel, story, or play.

Spike's Caudal Nucleus and a Dragon's natural HyperThymesia · 1:38am Sep 15th, 2012

Here are some medical terms required to understand some dialogue that'll be coming at the end of "The Wyrm Has Turned"

The caudate nucleus is a nucleus located within the basal ganglia of the brains of many animal species. The caudate nucleus is an important part of the brain's learning and memory system.

Learning and memory
Historically, the basal ganglia as a whole have been implicated in higher-order motor control.[2] The caudate nucleus was initially thought to primarily be involved with control of voluntary movement. More recently, it has been demonstrated that the caudate is highly involved in learning and memory,[3] particularly regarding feedback processing.[4] In general, it has been demonstrated that neural activity will be present within the caudate while an individual is receiving feedback. People with hyperthymesia appear to have slight increases in the sizes of the caudate nucleus as well as of the temporal lobe of the cortex.

Emotion
The caudate nucleus has been implicated in responses to visual beauty, and has been suggested as one of the "neural correlates of romantic love".

In my story, Dragons have a powerful associative memory that allows them to recall any point in their lives. It's a nature similar to HyperThymesia

HyperThymesia
also known as piking[1] or hyperthymestic syndrome[2] is a condition in which an individual possesses a superior autobiographical memory, meaning he or she can recall the vast majority of personal experiences and events in his or her life. The term “hyperthymesia" is derived from the Greek words "thymesis," meaning "remembering," and "hyper," meaning "excessive."
