More information on how we can now imprint memories onto cultured neural tissue:

Researchers at Tel Aviv University in Israel have demonstrated that neurons cultured outside the brain can be imprinted with multiple rudimentary memories that persist for days without interfering with or wiping out others.

The other day I mentioned how I used a cultured neural network in my novel Remembrancer. Oh, the possibilities…

  1. Huh, who would’ve thunk it. I just finished John Scalzi’s Ghost Brigades and this very idea is central to the novel. I suggest you take a peak at it.

Clearly it is not something of pure fiction any longer…
