Haptics Impacts how the World is Viewed, Sight Impacts how the world is Felt
New research, published in the April 9,2009 online issue of Current Biology, reinforces the suspicion that senses play off of and reinfoce one another, to an even greater extent. In this case, MIT neuroscientists have found a corollary to the visual illusion process in the tactile sensory systems of humans.

Artificial Memories Placed in an Organic Brain
A proof of concept set of experiments demonstrates that with the aid of optogenetic neuroprosthetics, memory transferance between individuals is actually possible. This proof of concept also means that encoding downloadable knowledge as a set of memory engram activation patterns is at least possible.
