False Memories Created by Stimulating Brain Neurons
Researchers at MIT have found how to alter memories by activating neurons in the brain that are associated with memory and update them with new information. Since memories are stored in a particular set of neurons in the brain, understanding how memories are encoded to these specific neurons could be the key to understanding how human memory works as well as how human memory disorders function. Using a mouse, a cage, and a small shock, the MIT researchers may have just discovered how memories are encoded in the brain. For more information, check out the full article HERE.
