Is real science catching up to Topher ? New Scientist reports that a Laser has been used to create false memories in fly brains.
"A flash of laser light can alter the brains of fruit flies so that they learn to fear pain that they never actually felt".
OK so Topher probably doesn't have too much to worry about just yet, except maybe a guest appearance by Jeff Goldblum, but does anyone else find it amazing that even such a tiny amount of brain alteration is actually possible ?
