Technology is advancing rapidly, and now the scientific community is focused on those who have called the ” memory Hackers ” a very important issue that you have your own documentary on the American channel NOVA. This documentary shows us cutting-edge research that has been done on the nature of human memory and how it could be used for the benefit of mankind.

The scientists begin to play with the brain, can erase memories

“For much of human history, memory has been seen as a recorder that records information accurately and reproduced intact. But now, researchers are finding that memory is much more malleable, whenever you write or rewrite, not only for ourselves but for others. Are discovering the precise mechanisms that may explain and even control our memories “, said the makers of the documentary.

One advantage of this new technology has its own space in the film, a boy named Jake Hausler, 12 years old, who remembers almost complete accuracy every detail of his life since he was 8 years old, and is already the youngest person to receive a very high autobiographical memory diagnosis person, that makes it virtually impossible to distinguish a trivial memory of an important moment in his life.

On the other hand, the neurologist André Fenton says that this technology will allow to delete painful memories, traumas and even eliminate phobias, but warns that this technology would even implant false memories  to people, which “could be disastrous.”
