Yale Scientists Retrieve Lost Memories In Alzheimer Mice
Scientists have pulled forgotten memories out of the foggy brains of mice engineered to have signs of early Alzheimer’s disease. The experiment, described online March 16 in Nature, used flashes of blue light and offers new clues about how the brain handles memories. In addition, it offers insight into how the process can go awry.
Yale School of Medicine neurologist Arash Salardini says the result “provides a theoretical mechanism for reviving old, forgotten memories." While memory manipulation was “once the realm of science fiction. Salardini added that "this experiment and other recent work have now accomplished these feats, at least in rodents."
