Memories? That word doesn't ring any bells.

Srsly though, why did they name it MIT? Men In Tracksuits? (Chav appeal?) i don't get it. MIB is way better, especially if they employ Will Smith to clear up any loose memories they don't like.

Honestly, dont like it at all. I am surely afraid of how this technology can be abused, if it isnt done right now...

I would volunteer for the beta test of this. While they are at it, I'd give up my right arm if I could get an upgraded, Deus Ex style arm.

Seriously though, this was only done in genetically engineered mice that had modified neurons that would respond to light (lasers). This has no present day bearing on humans. What I found really interesting was that the gene that allows memories to be formed has been isolated. By removing that gene, mice can be bred that have no capacity for memory at all. I wonder if it's possible to breed mice with no capacity to form memories, allowing them to be artificially encoded. It would be akin to a biological robot. Or if neuron memory can be read, maybe it could be transferred to another mouse that was bred with no ability to form it's own memories, in effect, transferring the mind of one mouse to another's body.

Then try and apply this to humans, immortality anyone?

Haha, just kidding. I don't think this is dangerous, if they can crack open your brain, you have a bigger problem already even before they try to mess with it.
