Optogenetics Tests Memory Manipulation Theory

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Optogenetics is giving scientists a better look at how different parts of the brain can work together to manipulate memories. Using the light-based technique, researchers at the University of California, Davis, have been able to erase specific memories in mice. Their findings prove the basic theory of how different parts of the brain will work together to retrieve episodic memories, they said. The researchers used mice genetically modified to make their nerve cells fluoresce green when activated by light and to make the cells express a protein that allows them to be switched off...Read full article
