Think Fast S1, EP9 – Laser precision memory manipulation with Asaf Marco

Dr. Asaf Marco is a memory expert from MIT who came on episode 9 of Think Fast. His work studies how memory formation and the genes instead our neurons can be manipulated to better understand the day to day working of human memory formation. This episode was fascinating too because his lab has used newly bred research mice with specifically created neurons that help both with fluorescence when the memory systems are ‘active’ and also to be super precise to the conditions Dr Marco wanted to study. The studies attached on our site watercoolerneuroscience.co.uk were gifted to the site by Dr Marco so those who want to learn more about his work can find out, for those who just want the overview please press play
