Science Can Now COMPLETELY Erase Our Painful Memories!

Have you ever wished you could erase an awful memory? Kind of like Jim Carey in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Well, now Scientists are saying that they can remove and delete memories from your brain.

Recently, MIT researchers have shown for the first time that memories are stored in specific brain cells. By triggering a small cluster of neurons the researchers were able to force the subject to recall a specific memory. By removing these neurons, the subject would lose that memory.

The only problem, the subjects of these tests were mice!

While we’re still a while away from being able to delete human memories, the most important discovery here is that we finally have proof that memories are physical rather than conceptual. The question is, would you make the choice to delete the painful memories if you could?
