For stroke or Alzheimer's victims, the promise of Dr. Theodore Berger's recent breakthrough is enormous: imagine a prosthetic chip inserted in the brain that imitates the function of a brain's damaged hippocampus (the region associated with long term memory). The current successful laboratory tests on rats, restoring long term memory at the flick of a switch, will next be duplicated in primates (monkeys) and eventually humans.
