    A number of neuroscientists (including myself) have been discussing this on twitter. There is definitely a range of opinion, but some relatively strong opinions (which I share) that the quite interesting findings aren't really all that surprising & definitely aren't uniquely inexplicable. In part this is because almost everything is inexplicable in neuroscience & we understand almost nothing about how brains process information (or even if information processing is a useful metaphor for what brains do).

    I think it’s interesting in terms of perspective- we remodel our neurons , but keep the identity- but memory being what it is, we could also smell things differently but think it’s the same- and perhaps by smelling things often, we keep the memory the same while remodeling- and all other kinds of mix and match-
    That visual is more persistent would say something about using a sense frequently, and keeping the drift narrow, it would be interesting to see the same experiment, but with people who are musicians,-or other audio related, and perfumers etc- and see if their drift was the same
    But ofcourse the experiments were on mice so(?!?)
