Oh! The things you can learn about neurobiology by aimlessly walking around in a shop. Apparently, the part of the limbic system responsible for learning and memory* looks like a hippo! This is fortunate for those of you who enjoy needlework, since you can now sew a cuddly hippocampus for al your forgetful friends. Yay!
Unless of course , you suffer from hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia, which I was amazed to find out is actually not the fear of a monstrous hippopotamus on a bicycle.
*At least we think that’s what it does, we may either have learned or remembered it wrong. Which come to think of it might be a ploy on the hippocampus’ part. Maybe it just sits around watching YouTube and drinking sodas all day, snickering because we think it’s so hugely important we feed it snacks.
