What is neuromuscular efficiency?

What can cause deja vu?
Michael Roizen, MD, Internal Medicine, answeredOne theory on deja vu is that hyperactive neurotransmitters (e.g., dopamine) that help shuttle information into both short-term memory and long-term memory centers change lanes. The visual memory you are seeing for the first time ends up getting sent directly into long-term memory before it's processed into short-term memory. The result? Your brain "recalls" the image from the long-term memory storage area, which tells you it's a memory from the past, not the present. Deja vu!
Another deja vu theory is that these been-there-done-that feelings are a result of one eye sending information to the brain faster than the other. Almost everyone has a dominant eye. If the stronger eye sends information to the subconscious before both eyes focus and register the input as a conscious experience, your brain will tell you, "I've seen that before." You have, but only a nanosecond ago. Or, maybe you've just "seen" it on the computer or TV.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
