Scientists Now Able To Memory Wipe Mice

I knew this day would come. The day I attempt to go on a beautiful vacation to Mars, only to realize that I’m really a secret agent fighting against an evil and corrupt Mars administrator. Yes, Total Recall.

Dr. Joe Z. Tsien, a brain scientist and co-director of the Brain & Behavior Discovery Institute at the Medical College of Georgia School, and his team were successful in removing new and old memories in mice by over-expressing a protein critical to brain cell communication just as the memory was recalled. What does this mean for humans? We’re all going to get mind-wiped and turned into a zombie army. That, or the Total Recall thing.
