All of us carry some sort of fear in our brain. Past bad experiences leave behind fear, lurking deep inside our heart that sends shock waves to our brain asking us to be alert. How would it be if you could just erase those bad experiences of life?
A recent research from Uppsala University has found that newly formed emotional memories can be erased from brain. Thomas Ågren from Department of Psychology said, "Ultimately the new findings may lead to improved treatment methods for millions of people in the world who suffer from anxiety issues like phobia, post-traumatic stress and panic attacks".
Thomas Ågren said in our brain, a consolidation process takes place that helps us in remembering new things. During an experiment, it was brought to light that our reactions to the subject or situation helps us learning. For example, if a picture shown to us trigger fear then a fear memory is stored in to our brain.
The findings of the researchers can help them in finding ways by which the fear memories could be erased from the brain. Soon the dream of researchers will become a reality.
