Neuroscientists plant false memories in the brain. The phenomenon of false memory has been well-documented: In many court cases, defendants have been found guilty based on testimony from witnesses and victims who were sure of their recollections, but DNA evidence later overturned the conviction.
In a step toward understanding how these faulty memories arise, MIT neuroscientists have shown that they can plant false memories in the brains of mice. They also found that many of the neurological traces of these memories are identical in nature to those of authentic memories.

1/ Sorted by ideas more than fields ? 2/ More sorted between science and literature ? 3/ A sandbox for to try temporary structures ? 4/ Temporaries individual spaces for free thought ? 5/ Exterior exchange for preliminaries trials ? (I am strong interested, if is posible in French or Spanish, my English is disastrous... :-) Possibly by email (from now to end march13) : firstname.lastname@example.org (full freedom for comments in exchanges).

Looks to me like mostly a sorting issue . The pearltrees themselves as far at categories looks ok . But there's plenty of sorting to be done .The "to be sorted" "Neuroscience" especially needs sorting into existing pearltrees . The "Other's Tree" should be changed to "Consciousness groups" or "Neuroscience groups" or both. "Religion and Philosophy" should be seperated and expanded. "Psychology" needs more pearls and separated categories."Meditaion" needs more pearls .

@mirlen101 i'll get back to you with some links to some of the stuff i am doing...

@gboyle2001 I probably wouldn't have thought it tedious if I were doing it in a different time , when I was younger . I had more obsessive stick-to-it-a-nous ;-) I'm sure it can be addicting once you get into it . It can feel God like I'm sure . The creation process can be very empowering . I know it's my life’s blood ( creation ) Like to here more about what you plan on doing with the programing and the rest of your education . Sounds interesting !

great thing consciousness tree. i don't believe it is is just psychology students, but that there is collectivelly a genuine interest rising in this topic...of who we are, what minds are...i love adds that keep coming from all sides. the good thing for pearltrees would be some sort of quick tag system that allows speedy reorganisation and tracking. sometimes i stay for hours when i was just gonna do coffee break!

@boymans The "Consciousness" pearltree is so popular I have trouble keeping up with comments . So many e-mails coming in it buries almost everything else ! Not the comments as much as the mundane activities . It seems to be the most active pearltree on Pearltrees.com . Really strange when you think about it ! Must be masses of Psychology students ?

@boymans Thanks . Like I was saying earlier . I kind of avoid YouTube and TED pearls because they are so extensive . They have there own listings so I tend to pearl them in the most unique situations . Cases where I think the TED or YouTube video is the only or best way of getting across a concept or idea . But if you are talking about a specific pearltree like this one "Consciousness" then I think that could work by keeping it very specific and narrow in field .
