The Black Mirror episode "The Entire History of You" from season 1 talks about the exact same thing, if I remember it properly. They could store and playback the memories and watch it like watching a video using virtual reality gear.

This technology can help coma patients. You use the memories of the patient and play them in their brain. A study revealed that hearing memories from their kin can help the patients with a speedy recovery. This technology can take it a step further and directly switch on specific memories in the patient's brain.

Shubhankar Kulkarni Very cool episode, indeed. This also brings up the issue that some also may have if they have problems letting go of some memories. I remember the main character would ruminate over negative memories and drive him mad. This could be an issue, but perhaps this may be why this technology would be more useful in the clinical setting... Thanks for your comment!
