Submission + - Using memory-erasing drug before sleep could help cure PTSD (nature.com)

phyzz writes: "Using a memory-erasing drug on mice on which traumatic fear was provoked by mild electric shocks associated with a particular odor, researchers from Stanford University have had better results curing the fear than by repeatedly exposing the mice to the odor alone, i.e. therapy sessions. Unfortunately the drug in question is not safe for humans, but antidepressants might be used instead."
