Ben W. Strowbridge, PhD, Professor of Neurosciences and Physiology/Biophysics, and Robert A. Hyde, a fourth year MD/PhD student in the neurosciences graduate program at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, have discovered how to store diverse forms of artificial short-term memories in isolated brain tissue.

"This is the first time anyone has found a way to store information over seconds about both temporal sequences and stimulus patterns directly in brain tissue," says Dr. Strowbridge. "This paves the way for future research to identify the specific brain circuits that allow us to form short-term memories."
Their study, entitled "Mnemonic Representations of Transient Stimuli and Temporal Sequences in Rodent Hippocampus In Vitro," is slated for publication in the October issue of Nature Neuroscience, and is currently available online.

"The type of activity we triggered in isolated brain sections was similar to what other researchers have demonstrated in monkeys taught to perform short-term memory tasks," according to Mr. Hyde. "Both types of memory-related activity changes typically lasted for 5-10 seconds."
The researchers also demonstrated that they could generate memories for specific contexts, such as whether a particular pathway was activated alone or as part of a sequence of stimuli to different inputs. Changes in ongoing activity of hippocampal neurons accurately distinguished between two temporal sequences, akin to humans recognizing the difference between two different song melodies. The artificial memories Dr. Strowbridge's group created in the hippocampus continued to recognize each sequence even when the interval between stimuli was changed.

Sounds to me like a gateway into ultimate knowledge..super soldiers will be forged not created; instantaneously everything there is to know and anything they want you to know will be implanted in your brain as "memory" just the thought is quite interesting really~

Super soliders are already being created. They have been working on it, with the help of secretly harbored Nazi scientists, since WWII.
Lots of info on it, just search for it.

It is also possible that this kind of tech is already being used, thru various aspects of consciousness, unconsciousness, subliminal and military psyops.

So perhaps this can lead to either elongating life by transfering memories from one brain to the next or maybe a set population living eternally or however mother nature will allow us to live.

perhaps we could do the opposite and download memories into a computer for "re-lifing" someone who has died.
