Scientists believe they succeeded in conveying memories of snails freely to the other, and that their study may be a breakthrough in the field memory, and a step towards reducing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease in humans.
In the experiment, done by researchers the University of California at Los Angeles, snails freely, known as “area a Californian Lanka” Aplysia californica, in which the snails to electric shock, not painful, demonstrating a defensive reaction for 50 seconds when you touch them, scientists have used DNA ribose Rana, RNA, a type of genetic information, from the marine shells that have been dumbfounded.
Scientists have made DNA ribose RNA extracted in snails freely other not exposed to electrocution, demonstrating the same defensive reaction, where the decrease for 40 seconds, despite the fact that the defensive reaction to this no more than just one second in the sea snails that have not been exposed to electric shocks.
According to Professor David else, author of the study and the trade, it looks like the memory transfer from Marine shells electrified to the other, and that this kind of memories stored in DNA ribose RNA instead of links between brain cells, as many believe.
The study, published in the journal eNeuro, sea snails and humans share in cell and molecular techniques similar, which gives the hope of further understanding memory in humans.
