I understand that if a presynaptic cells release of neurotransmitter often causes action potentials in a certain postsynaptic cell, the connection between the two cells is strengthened. I believe this is known as "long term potentiation"? if this is true, could not scientists then watch synaptic action in one brain, as a memory is made, and then electrically stimulate neurons in another brain the same way, to create a "false" memory?
