Engineering Memories

Scientist from MIT ran an experiment where they were able to link up a specific emotional response to a mouse’s previous memory. Essentially Engineering Memory:

 

Engineering Memories AE Mind Science

Here is an excerpt from “The Era of Memory Engineering Has Arrived” article on Scientific American:

 

Now, a new set of experiments, led by MIT neuroscientists Steve Ramirez and Xu Liu in Susumu Tonegawa’s lab, shows that this needn’t be the case. Using a stunning set of molecular neuroscience techniques (no electrode caps involved), these scientists have captured specific memories in mice, altered them, and shown that the mice behave in accord with these new, false, implanted memories. The era of memory engineering is upon us, and naturally, there are big implications for basic science and, perhaps someday, human health and society.
