In this CNN article, MBRF Trustee, Dr. Richard Isaacson provides thoughts on new research uncovering how the brain records memories as we sleep.
“This study is fascinating,” said Dr. Richard Isaacson. “Despite decades of research, it remains somewhat unclear how ‘short-term’ memories get filed away to become ‘long-term’ memories that can be recalled later.”
“Using a brain-computer interface is an exciting way to study memory since it can record brain cell activity patterns and then look for those exact patterns later.”Dr. Richard Isaacson, MBRF Trustee
