Midmorning: Senate candidate Robert Fitzgerald and breakthroughs in mapping memory
Posted at 7:38 AM on October 5, 2006 by Bill Wareham
Independence Party U.S. Senate candidate Robert Fitzgerald - he of the vegetable oil-fueled campaign bus - will be Kerri Miller's guest at 9 a.m. on Midmorning. (FYI: This is part of a series of programs Midmorning scheduled with Senate candidates. DFLer Amy Klobuchar was on earlier in the week. Republican Mark Kennedy was originally scheduled for Friday, but canceled and has been unable to reschedule.)
At 10 a.m. Kerri and MIT researcher Mark Bear will discuss new techniques for seeing how the brain processes memory. This new discovery is now leading scientists to explore the possibilities of erasing unpleasant memories and implanting memories of experiences that never occurred.
