Withered brain cells restored (in monkeys, anyway)

jmp100 Re:Alzheimers is brain's equivalent of "disk full" (207 comments)

That experiment, if that's how it really worked, seems to have been engineered to produce a certain result. They should have shown a control group the full license plate.

My point wasn't that hypnosis was perfect. In fact, I said it was dangerous. Those results may simply have been random noise floating around - for example, a bit of the LAST full license plate the person saw. And that last data might have been dubbed in there because the hypnotized test subjects' memory retrieval wasn't staying within bounds. Cognitive function is bypassed by hypnosis. It's quite possible that it may take additional functionality with it. But, as I stated in my original post, the memories ARE there. It's just a matter of training yourself to retrieve them. The haze of time may distort how we percieve memories. It does not distort the memories themselves.
