Wish forgetting a bad experience was as easy as popping a pill? It might be someday soon.
After several successful trials with animals, Andreas Luthi of the Friedrich Miescher Institute in Switzerland is hoping to develop a memory drug that would eradicate bad memories for humans.
“The memory-cleansing medication could effectively erase recollections that are sad, embarrassing or otherwise unpleasant – kind of like how, in the Oscar-winning movie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet were able to eradicate memories of their not so sweet affair by taking a pill,” explains the New York Daily News.
