Some frightening stuff that we need to pursue

Finally, some real shit. These guys have managed to make an on/off memory expansion for rats' brains. Put the switch on, they remember. put it off, they forget.

The article says it all, I'm gonna go read the actual publication now, which is here.

google it and you shall find how much people's nuts are being driven with this. I haven't felt this excited since I heard what Craig Venter's lab had done.

Of course, one should keep in mind that these guys are trying to treat dementia, but I am interested in the memory-expansion applications, where one could upload memory into someone's brain. Perhaps even store it chemically, electronically. I think I need to get a few more degrees.
