>Glanzman’s experiments — funded by the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation — involved giving mild electrical shocks to the marine snail Aplysia californica. Shocked snails learn to withdraw their delicate siphons and gills for nearly a minute as a defense when they subsequently receive a weak touch; snails that have not been shocked withdraw only briefly.

>The researchers extracted RNA from the nervous systems of snails that had been shocked and injected the material into unshocked snails. RNA’s primary role is to serve as a messenger inside cells, carrying protein-making instructions from its cousin DNA. But when this RNA was injected, these naive snails withdrew their siphons for extended periods of time after a soft touch. Control snails that received injections of RNA from snails that had not received shocks did not withdraw their siphons for as long.

Let us celebrate the marine snail hivemind.

>Glanzman knows his unceremonial demotion of the synapse is not going to go over well in the field. “I expect a lot of astonishment and skepticism,” he said. “I don’t expect people are going to have a parade for me at the next Society for Neuroscience meeting.”

>“If he’s right, this would be absolutely earth-shattering,” said Tomás Ryan, an assistant professor at Trinity College Dublin, whose lab hunts for engrams, or the physical traces of memory. “But I don’t think it’s right.”

I wonder what the reproductibility method would be here to help prove the concept.
Extracting and exchanging RNA from other creatures and testing reactions?

also in the news on brains today

>In our new paper in Nature Neuroscience, we use the meta-reinforcement learning framework developed in AI research to investigate the role of dopamine in the brain in helping us to learn. Dopamine—commonly known as the brain’s pleasure signal—has often been thought of as analogous to the reward prediction error signal used in AI reinforcement learning algorithms. These systems learn to act by trial and error guided by the reward. We propose that dopamine’s role goes beyond just using reward to learn the value of past actions and that it plays an integral role, specifically within the prefrontal cortex area, in allowing us to learn efficiently, rapidly and flexibly on new tasks.

>We tested our theory by virtually recreating six meta-learning experiments from the field of neuroscience—each requiring an agent to perform tasks that use the same underlying principles (or set of skills) but that vary in some dimension.

>One experiment we recreated is known as the Harlow Experiment, a psychology test from the 1940s used to explore the concept of meta-learning. In the original test, a group of monkeys were shown two unfamiliar objects to select from, only one of which gave them a food reward. They were shown these two objects six times, each time the left-right placement was randomised so the monkey had to learn which object gave a food reward. They were then shown two brand new objects, again only one would result in a food reward. Over the course of this training, the monkey developed a strategy to select the reward associated-object: it learnt to select randomly the first time, and then based on the reward feedback to choose the particular object, rather than the left or right position, from then on. The experiment shows that monkeys could internalise the underlying principles of the task and learn an abstract rule structure — in effect, learning to learn.

Are your memories the same as your consciousness though?
It feels to me all you'd do in that situation would be create entities with copies of your memories alongside you.

if you're cloning yourself then your brain and all would be the same shit
so if you injected the memories of yourself into a clone of yourself wouldn't the clone just function as you would?
so does it really matter if your consciousness leaves or not?
you will still exist

Total Recall was a fucking prophecy
Anno
>>499030
We don't really know where the consciousness exists though.
Possibly, extracting the RNA in this procedure and putting it into something else might transfer a consciousness from one body to another.
But that's not really something that can be determined in creatures on the scale of marine snails.
The memories the RNA transfer is moving might not even be memories that compose our consciousness, if that's even what our consciousness is.
This is kind of leaving my limited understanding of thought and consciousness at a rapidly accelerating pace though so I really don't fucking know.

There's a decent amount of rain here until June or so but it really starts cutting off around may.
Late winter to early spring it rains all the time, I like it. It'll rain several days in a row sometimes.

Summer thunderstorms would be nicer if the weather wasn't so miserable, when it's hot and humid it feels awful.
