Whoa: "By planting false memories into the minds of mice, neuroscientists at MIT have created the first artificially implanted memories." WHUT.

Iain and I couldn't stop talking about this last night, and going down trail after trail of various possibilities of what this could mean, especially if and when researchers figure out how to capture memory as well as implant it. Which ultimately led to an interesting conversation about choice and consent and how we're all going to live in computers someday.

Gleep glorp!
