Intriguing and somewhat troubling news has emerged from the world of mind control science. According to this report in Mother Jones...
In experiments on mice, scientists rewired the circuits of the brain and changed the animals' bad memories into good ones. The rewriting of the memory wasn't done with drugs but by using light to control the activity of brain cells. While science is a long way from achieving a similar feat in people, it adds to a body of research that is starting to uncover the physiological basis of memory.
Oh, and just in case you were wondering about the most obvious question that the above seems to raise, the answer is...
The researchers said they were able to do the opposite as well—change a pleasurable memory in mice into one associated with fear.
Room 101, here we come, friends.
