Biologists erased the memory of a mouse! Freaking
posted January 31 2011 22:07.47 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Biotechnology is getting creepier day by day. This time, a scientific team from the University of Aberdee, managed to erase the working memory of a mouse. This type of memory is the place we hold temporary info for ongoing tasks, such as dialing a phone number. Most of this info is lost after the task is carried out. They were focusing on a specific type of neuron that's damaged in people with schizophrenia, as well as those who abuse ketamine and PCP. They bred mice with a specific property, according to which they could selectively stop these neurons by injecting a virus. Read the original article here, and prepare yourselves for human Ctrl-Alt-Del
