Researchers Can Now Implant False Memories Into People's Brains

Japanese researchers have developed a trick to implant false visions into people’s brains, altering the way they experience the world and potentially even the way they think.

By provoking people to rewire their own brains, he hopes to help patients strengthen certain healthy connections and erase other less desirable ones.
