Scientists Learn To Selectively Erase & Restore Memories In The Brain At Will


Wiping out memories at will, sounds like something out of a science fiction movie doesn’t it? Now, it’s not just in the movies, and science continues to move forward continually turning science fiction into science fact.

We do not condone animal testing, especially this type where the animals are subjected to negative emotions. I did however find it important to write about given the fact that trauma induced mind control experiments are happening to human beings on a daily basis. We’ve seen this with programs such as MK Ultra that I will elaborate on further in this article. This is why I wanted to bring awareness to the study, to bring more awareness on programs like MK Ultra.

Researchers have discovered how to erase and then restore the lost memory in genetically modified rats with a single flash of light. The study was conducted by researchers from the University of California in San Diego and was published in the journal Nature. This is the very first piece of public evidence that strengthening or weakening connections between neurones in the brain can influence particular memories.(1)

“We can form a memory, erase that memory and we can reactivate it, at will, by applying a stimulus that selectively strengthens or weakens synaptic connections.” - Robert Malinow, snior author, MD, PhD, Dept of Neurosciences

They used fear to accomplish memory loss.

“Scientists optically stimulated a group of nerves in the brain of rats that had been genetically modified to make them sensitive to light, and simultaneously delivered an electrical shock to the animal’s foot. The rats soon learned to associate the optical nerve stimulation with pain and displayed fear behaviours when these nerves were stimulated.” (1)

Scientists observed chemical changes that are indicative of synaptic strengthening. They also demonstrated the ability to weaken this circuitry by stimulating the same nerves with a “memory-erasing, low-frequency train of optical pulses.”
