Será que conseguimos editar o conteúdo de nossa memória? É uma questão sci-fi na qual Steve Ramirez e Xu Liu estão trabalhando em seu laboratório no MIT. Essencialmente, os dois dispararam um feixe de laser no cérebro de um rato vivo, para ativar e manipular sua memória. Nesta palestra inesperadamente divertida eles compartilham não somente como, mas — o mais importante — por que eles fazem isso. (Filmado no TEDxBoston)
