On Aug 5th I wrote a post called the Molecular Biology of Memory in which I argued that there must be specific molecules that are responsible for storing memories. I am extremely excited today to see this post that tells the discovery of scientists at SUNY of the role of Protein Kinase Mzeta and its role in storing memories.

I quote >>>they demonstrate that by inhibiting the molecule they can erase long-term memories, much as you might erase a computer disc. Furthermore, erasing the memory from the brain does not prevent the ability to re-learn the memory, much as a cleaned computer disc may be re-used.< Welcome Men In Black.... now look to the light and forget... Or the dictatorship will enjoy this discover and make plenty of "usefull" things for them. I like science,... but sometime... it can afraid you... See you !
