at Baylor College of Medicine and Rice University have revealed for the
first time the patterns of electrical activity in rat brains associated
with specific memories, in this case fearful experiences.
discovered that before rats avoid a place they feared, their brains
recalled memories of the physical location where the experience
results appear in Nature Neuroscience, and the researchers hope that
understanding how the brain remembers can one day shed light on what
goes wrong when memory fails, as happens in Alzheimer’s disease. - See
