Something has become with my memory,
Everything that was not with me - I remember.

The question goes back to yesterday's news, which was about that the new children's ombudsman, in addition to his Orthodox beliefs, also believes in telegonia.

Firstly, the uterus is an organ made up of several different tissues: epithelial, muscle, and others. None of the tissues that make up the uterus form structures capable of learning and remembering. Only neurons connected in a rather intricate network perform this function in the human body. Their localization, as we understand it, to put it mildly does not coincide with the uterus.

Secondly, the cells in our body are constantly renewed. And if answering this question, we talk about memory, then we must admit that we should not talk about the memory of the cell, but about the coordinated work of cellular structures in which cells "communicate" with each other, which again leads us exclusively to neural networks. And we just visited there :) It's not there.

Thirdly, speaking of telegony (which is still implied in this matter, given the news context), then we must admit that after contact in adolescence with the sperm of the first partner, the DNA in the cells of the uterus must somehow change (i.e., there must be a horizontal gene transfer), then this mutation must spread to the ovaries (i.e. the uterus has nothing to do with it). As a result, the genes of all subsequent eggs must contain the genes of the first partner (and all subsequent ones). If such a mechanism of gene transfer existed, then we would, among other things, acquire the features of those foods that we eat.

Telegonia apologists refer to the fact that the mentioned effect is observed in dogs, and "every breeder knows this." ... But there is no medical or scientific evidence for this. And the quote from Kuznetsova in the news (or the quote attributed to her, I don’t know this): "the cells of the uterus have information-wave memory" - cannot be classified otherwise as selective enchanting antiscientific nonsense .

No. It is not the function of cells to remember. They support the life of the organ and reproduce themselves.

The question is not entirely specific, but if a reference to the ideas of telegony, then they are completely unscientific.
