The memory erase and recall button is a freaking discovery
posted June 21 2011 20:54.29 by Giorgos Lazaridis




In January this year, i uploaded a blog entry with the title "Biologists erased the memory of a mouse!" It wasn't a big deal to predict that this will be applied to humans as well in the future. But which future? The far or the near? Sadly, the near future. Four days ago, popular science uploaded an entry which was rather freaky:

A new brain implant tested on rats restored lost memories at the flick of a switch, heralding a possible treatment method for patients with Alzheimer’s disease, stroke or amnesia. Such a "neural prosthesis" could someday be used to facilitate the memory-forming process and help patients remember.
