I am totally sure this technology will never be abused

Via Livescience:

Scientists have successfully selected and safely erased specific memories in a mouse’s brain, leaving others intact, it was announced today.

The erasure can be done while a mouse tries to retrieve an individual memory, said Joe Z. Tsien, brain scientist and co-director of the Brain & Behavior Discovery Institute at the Medical College of Georgia School of Medicine.

Fortunately, this appears to be within its early stages and hard to adapt to humans.  But believe me, people all over the world will want something like this.  Oh the things you could do…

  1. Okay, that’s it.
    Starting tonight I’m regularly going to try and plant a new memory in my head.

    “If I ever find myself having no recollection of memory-erasing technology being usable, I will know they’ve done it.”
    I will then link this memory closely to the act of wearing my socks.
