The Nobel Prize in Medicine Goes to That Gal from "Friends"

Jennifer Anniston and Halle Berry have made a major breakthrough in medical research into how the brain works.

Well, their pictures have anyway.

Researchers at the California Institute of Technology used photos of celebrities to test memory. Using the picture suitable for People, scientists conducted research now published in Nature -- the science journal. The guys in the lab coats were able to isolate single neurons that hold memories of an image. The scientists say it's a really big deal that could lead to an understanding of how memory works.
