U.S. scientists have developed a “memory wipe” enzyme

"Are there any bad memories in your life that you wish you could simply erase? Researchers might have found a way to do exactly that thanks to the discovery of the enzyme in the brain that plays a pivotal role in storing long-term memories. They believe that this enzyme could be targeted in order to essentially wipe distressing memories out of the minds of people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, like many things that sound too good to be true, this development is raising red flags left and right."

I wonder what the "Side Effects" are.

No side effects because you won't remember who you are!!:D

They have used this on the military (CIA) for awhile,  all I know is it is considered VERY dangerous!!

How could they possibly target certain memories?  And wiping it out completely. There are much simpler, concrete ways of reducing emotional reactions to memories that don't involve drugs or completely wiping something out of your mind.  This is not good.

Ah ha!  This ties into my trans humanist thread.  I posted a bit about memories.

"The University of Toronto team has discovered memories are encoded in just a few cells of the brain, and hope they will find a way to wipe out the bad ones using drugs"

Side effects are:

Loss of memory.

Tragedy is what makes us human. To forget is to not learn from what you've been through and/or overcome.  

Who I am today is from the memories I've collected.

Yep: loss of memory, early onset of dementia, nausea, increased appetite and weight gain, loss of sexual desire and other sexual problems, such as erectile dysfunction and decreased orgasm, fatigue and drowsiness, insomnia, dry mouth, blurred vision, constipation, migraine headaches and suicide.

Talk to your doctor and ask if memory wipe is right for you!

*Make sure to take notes because you won't remember a damn thing.

No. Period. End of discussion.

Bad memories as well as good memories DEFINE who I am at this point in time.
