The memory molecule

My first contribution to the Scientific American Mind Matters website is now online. The article, called “The Power of the Memory Molecule“, is about the recent study which showed that memories can be selectively erased from the brains of mice by altering levels of the enzyme αCaMKII.

    The first with more to follow. Your writing deserves a wider readership. Mind Matters doesn’t post new material often enough for a daily check-in, but seeing your name at the top of the page was a pleasure. The neurogenesis/memory track could lead beyond the strictly science press: fascinating subject that you have good grip on. Write on.
