Pouvons-nous modifier le contenu de nos souvenirs ? C'est une question de science-fiction à laquelle s'intéressent Steve Ramirez et Xu Liu dans leur laboratoire au MIT. En résumé, ils envoient un rayon laser dans le cerveau d'une souris vivante, afin d'activer et de manipuler sa mémoire. Dans cette conférence plus amusante que prévue, ils expliquent non seulement comment ils le font, mais également, plus important, pourquoi. (Filmé à TEDxBoston)
