The Maestro of Memory Manipulation

“The neuroscientist Sheena Josselyn can evoke and erase memories in mice using new tools that precisely control the brain.”

“The power to control memory is both exciting and frightening. It evokes the dark images of science fiction movies such as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, in which a couple erases painful memories of each other. But the research also has the potential to unlock the mystery of memory disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), perhaps leading to new treatments.”
