Scientists Get First Image of Memory Being Made


www.foxnews.com

For the first time, an image of a memory being made at the cellular level has been captured by scientists.

The image shows that proteins are created at connections between brain cells when a long-term memory is formed. Neuroscientists had suspected as much, but hadn't been able to see it happening until now.

The experiment also revealed some surprising aspects of memory formation, which remains a somewhat mysterious process.

Amazing. What an age we live in.

Imagine the applications and ramifications this tech could have on our world.

Perhaps this could lead to memory recovery, treatment for alzheimers, lie detecting, etc.

This could lead to a dark side of interogation and witness management. Could people eventually be convicted of memory crimes? Or even convicted of illegal dreams?

How many gigabytes was the memory? Was it made using a solid state drive? JK

Interesting find. This indeed will further our discovery of medical science, and possible help develop cures for neurological disorders in the future.
