Scientists Plant False Memories in Mice

False memories in mice 001

In case you missed it, there was a news story recently about scientists planting false memories in mice. Not sure how they were able to establish that, but that’s why they’re scientists and I’m not.  (By the way, that is the evil Dr. Doofenschmirtz from Phineas and Ferb that I was trying to copy here; I cannot draw anything “from my brain” but can look at a simple drawing and inexpertly mimic it with a pencil.)

Here’s some art with some actual talent behind it. I don’t know what it was about a Black Hills vacation that made my daughter (8 years old) draw another 9/11 picture, but she did. She did one for school a year or so ago with 2 comically angry guys flying planes toward skyscrapers, but this one is even better, I think. Of course she can’t yet understand just how evil those people were, or what really went on in those planes.

    Here at the NSA we have ways of making mice “talk”. They generally don’t make much sense.
    “Food, food, Food, Sex, food, food, poop, sex, food” That’s usually the size of it.

    They’re implanting happy memories to replace the bad ones of all the painful experiments they are doing to the mice.

    It relieves any guilt that way.

  3. Just tell me how to redirect the rat who discovered my trash so that he searches and destroys my landlady. Should be good for a B sci fi flick, at any rate. Always wanted to hear that harpy scream.
