memory implantation?

So. In other Dollhouse related news:

io9 is telling me that memory implantation is now officially real:

“In a study published in the latest issue of Science, a team of researchers led by MIT neuroscientist and Nobel Laureate Susumu Tonegawa demonstrates its ability to isolate and activate engrams in a mouse’s memory-rich hippocampus. The researchers go on to implant false memories in the mouse’s mind, causing it to recall experiences that have never actually occurred.”

What could possibly go wrong? As the Big Bad of Dollhouse taught us: “You can’t un-invent the tech. It exists. And once it’s out there, it will be abused.”

Luckily I tend to lean away from apocalyptic visions of the future.
