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.
