Time cells

Time cells are neurons in the hippocampus (an area in the brain that handles memory and other functions). These cells are thought to be responsible for allowing people to recollect the correct sequence of prior events while dwelling on the past incidents.

According to a new study, the time cells could be the glue that connects our memories together in the right sequence so that we can recall the correct order in which things have happened. This conclusion was made by a team of researchers from Brain and Cognition Research Center in France. The researchers monitored electrical activity in the brains of 15 epilepsy patients using electrodes implanted in the hippocampus.
