(HealthNewsDigest.com) - Researchers at the University of California, Riverside have devised a method to selectively erase particular fear memories by weakening the connections between neurons involved in forming these memories.

In their experiments, they found that fear memory can be manipulated in such a way that some beneficial memories are retained while others, detrimental to our daily life, are suppressed.

The research, done using a mouse model, offers insights into how PTSD and specific phobias may be better treated.
