Say goodbye to bad memory

May 22, 2008

Do you have a really bad memory or a past heartache that you would like and love to forget? Researchers at the Harvard and Mcgill University in Montreal, Canada,are working on an amnesia drug that blocks or deleted bad memories. This technique seems to allow psychiatrists to disrupt the biochemical pathways that allow a memory to be recalled.

The Journal of Psychiatric Research said that a drug called propanolol is used along with therapy to dampen memories of trauma victims. Scientists were able to remove a specific memory from brains of selected rats while leaving the rest of the other animals’ memories intact. An amnesia drug called U0126 was registered.

Ok, so maybe the ugly and painful memories can be removed, but I think the emotional signatures will still remain. And NO ONE can remove one’s emotions.
