    In late 2013, MIT neuroscientists Xu Liu and Steve Ramirez manipulated the memory of a mouse. Using a laser and the protein channelrhodopsin, they “activated” the rodent’s (false) fear memories. The impetus, says Ramirez, was the awful feeling of a break-up, the desire, Eternal Sunshine-style, to erase the bad associations with his ex. Says Ramirez, “I realized, maybe that’s a little bit lofty for now. So what if we could start off by going into the brain of a mouse and just find a single memory to begin with? Could we jump-start that memory back to life, maybe even play with the contents of that memory?”
