Military Investigates Amnesia Beams

Military Investigates Amnesia Beams: "A team of scientists from the U.S. and China announced last week that, for the first time, they had found a means of selectively and safely erasing memories in mice, using the signaling molecule ╬▒CaMKII. It's a big step forward, and one that will be of considerable interest to the military, which has devoted efforts to memory manipulation as a means of treating post-traumatic stress disorder. But some of military research has been in another direction entirely."
