Zephyr/Science Photo Library/Getty By Jessica Hamzelou Memories have a unique genetic signature in the brain – a code that has only just been discovered and unlocked. The findings, in mice, suggest we may be able to read people’s memories by examining the patterns in their brains, and even one day alter or repair them to treat psychiatric disorders or memory loss. The brain seems to store memories in new connections between neurons. To do this, the neurons need to make new proteins – a process that is thought to be controlled by hundreds of genes. While investigating how this works,
