Watching molecules morph into memories: Breakthrough allows scientists to probe how memories form in nerve cells

Scientists have used advanced imaging techniques to provide a window into how the brain makes memories. These insights into the molecular basis of memory were made possible by a technological tour de force never before achieved in animals: a mouse model in which molecules crucial to making memories were given fluorescent ?tags? so they could be observed traveling in real time in living brain cells.
