Brain memory code cracked, claims scientists

What's Hawt: Despite a century of research, memory encoding in the brain has remained mysterious. Neuronal synaptic connection strengths are involved, but synaptic components are short-lived while memories last lifetimes. This suggests synaptic information is encoded and hard-wired at a deeper, finer-grained molecular scale.

Imagine scientists being able to manipulate your memories in the future, that could be some pretty scary stuff.

Like in The Matrix, when Trinity needs to fly a helicopter or when Neo learns all fighting styles in a sitting.

sounds good to me I wouldn't mind,maybe they could help me with math class.

Too bad those fighting moves didnt help him much when he was outside the Matrix though

If politicians get their hands on it in any way I will want my own island away from every body as soon as possible.

I wanna be on that island too. I can plant crops and take care of the animals. I know we gonna have to build houses too. I am good at those things. I want no part in a world where people will be directly manipulated to do the bidding of evil men.

Going beyond manipulating memory, if we find out how to create memory, education, etc...we would be able to create beings based upon our own set-up. That's even scarier!

reminds me of the movie the island.

I can imagine teachers being irrelevant in about 20 years if scientists can let us store information into our brains.

The thing that comes in my mind is............. COD : Black OPS :). What happened to that guy whose memory was encrypted with a signal could really be possible!
