Erasing the Memories of Sleeping Mice

Scientists Erase the Memories of Sleeping Mice  according to Nature (via Gizmodo) They mean erase the bad effects of memory and PTSD. The suggestion is that distressing experiences can be separated from the physiological trauma with a protein-blocking drug. This was written about in Memory: Fragments of a Modern History by Alison Winter (Chicago, 319 pp, £19.50, January, ISBN 978 0 226 90258 6) which I wrote an essay about in the London Review of Books: The Me Who Knew It.
