Scientists one step closer to deleting bad memories

Late last year, scientist were able to "delete" bad memories from the minds of mice (the memories weren't actually deleted, the mice's brain chemistry was altered at the time of trauma so the bad memory never formed). Now, a group of Dutch scientists have brought modern science one step closer to erasing bad memories from the minds of humans.

According to
an NPR report, when the Dutch team gave test subjects a common blood pressure drug (propranolol) when bad memories were recalled, the anxieties associated with the memory seemed to have disappeared. So, again, the bad memory isn't deleted. But the anxiety associated with it is. Still, this is a pretty extraordinary development.

You actually make it seem so easy together with
your presentation but I to find this topic to be really
something which I feel I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and
extremely huge for me. I am looking forward to your next put
up, I'll attempt to get the hold of it!

Have a look at my blog post - toronto web design

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
