False memories planted in brains of mice (republicans)

Scientists have implanted a false memory ( Memory | Science | The Guardian ) in the brains of mice in an experiment that they hope will shed light on the well-documented phenomenon whereby people "remember" events or experiences that have never happened.

when you recall an event, you are not remembering the event itself, you are remembering the last time you remembered it. each moment of recollection alters the memory slightly, like making a copy of a copy. over time, memories change quite a lot and not just in details, the core features can change.

there is a lot of research on false memories, the technical term is confabulation. its particularly easy to do it if you are in a mental state where you are very suggestible, the classic being under hypnosis. its notorious for hypnotists to "uncover" hidden memories that they hypnotist actually suggested to the subject.
