Huffington Post - Scientists Target and Block a Specific Memory - Douglas Fields
A new study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science reports that memory of a specific event was impaired by targeting it selectively. The results are now clear: the researchers had blotted out a specific memory by intervening at the precise time in the multi-phase biological process that makes memories stick. "What's nice about this particular study," memory researcher Daniela Schiller, explained, "is that they used a memory that is very similar to real-life memories (a movie in this case)."
