Some researchers at MIT think they've discovered the biological mechanism behind long-term memory. Pretty nifty, if they turn out to be right. Until now there hadn't been much progress on this front, at either the hardware (biology) or software (psychology) level. Once we get a better understanding of the physical structure behind memory, we may be able to implement human-like memory using computer systems -- an essential component of human-like artificial intelligence.
