Well done!

Comments about PBS NOVA: Memory Hackers DVD:

Memory Hackers is an educational discussion of recent research examining memory formation and retrieval. The film is understandable and intriguing, and illustrates neuronal activation when memories are formed (Eric Kandel's early research), how memory retrieval disrupts neuronal connections for a memory which must be reconsolidated, and how reconsolidation can be disrupted so the the original memory is gone. The film shows research (Merel Kindt) that uses reconsolidation prevention to eliminate the fear of spiders and suggests that the same technique could be used for post-traumatic stress and other anxiety producing stimuli. Great tool for educators!

Comments about PBS NOVA: Memory Hackers DVD:

This show seemed to use my lecture notes on the biobases of learning and memory. Marvelous. I will purchase the Blu-ray as soon as it becomes available.
