Thanks For The Memories
from the Monkey's-Paw dept
Some researchers are doing strange science that involves improving the
memories of mice. That sounds sounds all fine and dandy, until they suggested that the increased memory may not allow mice to forget painful
experiences. Put a mouse through a maze that involves punishment, and a supermouse will remember the painful reward longer than a normal mouse.
(Or maybe the supermouse is smarter?) So next time you wish you had a better memory, be careful what you wish for.
