From the BBC:
Scientists in the US say they have developed the ability to selectively wipe out uncomfortable memories.
In experiments with mice, researchers from the Georgia College of Medicine were able to eliminate memories without any damage to the rodents’ brains.
They suggested that the technique which works on a particular protein in the brain could, one day, be used to help humans overcome traumatic events.
