Is there any connection between the neurochemical changes and either the memory of the interaction that led to the changes or memory of the changes themselves? It seems there must be some connection as some reward circuitry purpose is to make us observe, recall, and seek what is important. But is that recall in our memory or somewhere else? If it is memory based, can the memory trigger an ongoing neurochemical drip? Do we store the memory of the interaction and later high, low, soothing, etc. feeling together or separately?
Could we remember more if we triggered the reward circuits during memory writing? Can we actively control what is stored in memory to lessen the hangover or ongoing memory-based drip?
