“‘Our model lets us establish a memory that has not been used before,’ Hampson says… If that could be replicated in humans, a chip could come with ready made code that could give people a head start on relearning general skills such as brushing your teeth or driving a car.”
“‘Memory erasure remains a possible but unproven hypothesis,’ Joseph LeDoux has written, adding that editing memories ‘is definitely possible and has broad implications.’”
Every week I send out articles I encounter from around the web. Subject matter ranges from hard knowledge about teaching to research about creativity and cognitive science to stories from other industries that, by analogy, inform what we do as educators. This breadth helps us see our work in new ways.
Readers include teachers, school leaders, university overseers, conference organizers, think tank workers, startup founders, nonprofit leaders, and people who are simply interested in what’s happening in education. They say it helps them keep tabs on what matters most in the conversation surrounding schools, teaching, learning, and more.
