Memory in the Flesh
After performing controversial memory experiments in the ‘50s and ‘60s, psychologist James V. McConnell’s reputation never recovered. His proposal — that memories could live on outside the brain — shook the foundations of biology and was widely discredited. But the researcher’s ideas didn’t quite disappear. In a laboratory at Tufts University, a developmental biologist by the name of Michael Levin is injecting new life into one of McConnell’s most outrageous ideas.
