"Memory is believed to be stored in neuron connections. It is theorized that everytime you recall a memory what is occurring is you are tracing through a specific neuron pathway. (This is a great simplification). Chemical reactions in the brain? After several neuroscience courses, I think the most relevant ""reaction"" (although it is not actually a reaction, but a receptor/ligand system) is the LTP system (long term potential). Basically it is the mechanism the brain uses to solidify new neuron connections. At a conference at the University of Toronto, acquiring memory was described as the formation of new synapses in the brain. "
