Future hope for eliminating Trauma Memories

In exciting new developments, researchers at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY have shown that they could erase memories using a single substance in a single does. This may lead to being able to eliminate traumatic memories and the effects of Complex Trauma and PTSD. The substance appears to block the activity of a substance that the brain needs to retain information and memories. While the practical applications of this new research to humans in years or decades away, it shows the great advances that research into brain functioning are beginning to yield practical results.
