Science of Cell Memory Theory

According to a very serious source that has been going viral on Social media, organ transplant patients can take on the personalities of their donors.

What’s the meaning of cell memory theory?

Well let me tell you , Cellular memory (CM) is a parallel hypothesis to BM positing that memories can be stored outside the brain in all cells. The idea that non-brain tissues can have memories is believed by some who have received organ transplants, though this is considered impossible. However, is this impossible?

In 2006, a 63-year-old man with a very limited artistic ability underwent a heart transplant. Following the operation, the man was astonished to find that his aesthetic capacity had drastically expanded. Medical caretakers at the emergency clinic were additionally shocked with his new ability. It was simply after the man discovered who the organ contributor was that his wonderful capacity started to bode well. The organ giver was a shape craftsman.

Is it conceivable that the abilities of the giver were given to the beneficiary through the heart? It doesn’t appear to be conceivable; in what capacity would this be able to kind of data be put away outside of the cerebrum? Cell memory hypothesis could clarify it!

One study followed 10 organ transplant recipients and found that there were two to five parallels with the donor’s history per transplant recipient. These parallels included changes in food, music, art , sexual, recreational, and career preferences. A second study that interviewed 47 transplant recipients found that 6% of patients felt that their personalities had changed because of their new organ. If you are not convinced, you’re not alone. Sceptics have highlighted the fact that both studies were very small, and especially in the case of the first study, the participants were chosen to prove the researchers’ bias.

1242 organ transplant were performed in Australia in 2015 alone, so the small number of reported cases of personality changes due to organ transplants in history worldwide raises doubts about the validity of cellular memory.

As well as this, none of the people advocating for cellular memory have provided any sound scientific explanation for how cellular memory would actually work in the body, and how memories and personality traits could be stored in organs other than the brain.

On the other hand, cellular memory sceptics provide several logical answers to why some people may think that they have taken on characteristics of their organ donors.

Possible explanations include side effects from the medications used in the surgery, or a response to the traumatic and life-threatening experience of having an organ transplant. The perceived personality changes could be coincidental, and the recipient has just drawn a parallel with the donor. The transplant recipients may also be subconsciously influenced by information they may have heard or been told while they were in hospital.

While there’s still a lot we don’t know about the human body, as interesting as cellular memory sounds, it is considered a pseudoscience. So no need to worry, if you’re on the Australian Organ Donor Register, there’s no real evidence that your personality, memories, or other characteristics will be passed on to your recipients!
