Can animals replay scenes from the past and reminisce? Scientists are finding ingenious ways to prove they can—and it’s opening up doors for fixing human memory as well.


For almost as long as modern science has been around, the idea that animals can remember past experiences seemed so preposterous that few researchers bothered to study it.

It’s been 50 years since police raided the Stonewall Inn.


In the wee hours of Saturday morning, June 28, 1969, the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street in Manhattan was raided by the police. The bar had been a gathering place for the LGBTQ community, offering a safe space at a time when there were few places where people could be themselves in a country where gay sex was a felony, cross-dressing was a crime, homosexuality was considered a mental illness, and people risked imprisonment, forced sterilization, and institutionalization for just being themselves.
