"Remember: long-term potentiation is like a path in the snow- the more you walk back and forth the better the path becomes- same as dendrites becoming bigger shrinking the synapse producing a path."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
