How to artificially erase, activate, and create memories in the brain

Thursday, March 29th, 6:30-8:00pm at Aeronaut (14 Tyler St, Somerville, MA 02143) (directions)

Steve Ramirez is interested in how memory works, what one looks like in the brain, and how to artificially manipulate them. Working with rodents, his lab has been able to successfully visualize, erase, and activate both positive and negative memories, as well as create false memories in the brain. More recently, their work has focused on manipulating positive and negative memories to alleviate psychiatric disease-like symptoms in rodent models of PTSD, depression, and anxiety.
