Inception: Scientists Have Successfully Implanted an Artificial Memory

We thought fake news was bad enough, but now it seems that scientists have successfully implanted a fake memory in an animal, potentially leading the way to human trials.

Researchers were able to reverse-engineer a natural memory by mapping the brain circuits the memory was based on in a test mouse.

Then, they implanted this memory artificially into another mouse by stimulating its brain cells in the pattern of the original memory.
Not only does this have vast ethical implications, but it might also make us question our own memories. While it is widely known that our memories are unreliable, this new research adds a whole new dimension to the issue.

As per Scientific American, the new findings show that brain circuits that normally respond to experiences and create memories can be manipulated in order to form fake memories. READ MORE AT ABOVE LINK

  1. I wouldn’t mind getting rid of some memories, but man there is some serious head-fakery going on at this point. No wonder God warned us about being deceived. Thank you, Jesus for giving us truth and allowing your remnant to see it. Help us be faithful stewards of it.
