7 NEW Mind Control Experiments Funded by the US Government (With Your Money)

Recently, neuroscientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have discovered that emotional ties to memories are facilitated by brain circuitry and these pathways can be “cut” to remove any ability to feel about what we recall from our past.

Funding for this study was provided by the RIKEN Brain Science Institute (RIKEN), Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), and the JPB Foundation (JPBF).

Emotional associations to past events can also be “reversed… by manipulating brain cells with optogenetics”; using light to direct neuron activity.

Because memories are stored in many areas of the brain, emotional originate in the amygdala which means that associations to them are “malleable”. 

 

Susumu Tonegawa, lead author of the study and professor of neurobiology at MIT Picower Institute for Learning and Memory (PILM) said:

“In the future, one may be able to develop methods that help people to remember positive memories more strongly than negative ones.”

The research team found that by manipulating brain cells, they could “reverse the emotions attached to memory.”

Tonegawa pointed out:

“The psychiatrist will talk with a patient suffering depression and try to make them recall positive memories they have had in the past. Apparently, this will reduce the effect of the bad memories they have had or the very strong stress they have had.

“But unless you look into the inside of the brain, you can’t tell what’s going on underneath the behavior. When people create memories, they store a great deal of context along with the memory itself. The memory information stored is not only about what happened, but also about the context in which the event occurred.”

Earlier this year, MIT’s PLIM published a study regarding a new drug that can assist sufferers of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in making their unwanted memories disappear.

This discovery is expected to be used in therapies with PTSD patients who cannot overcome difficult emotions. The drug tested is an HDAC2 inhibitor that proved in laboratory experiments to erase traumatic memories in rats.

The team at MIT showed that “re-exposure to a fearful memory opens a window of opportunity during which the memory can be altered, but only if the memory has recently been formed.

If you do something within this window of time, then you have the possibility of modifying the memory or forming a new trace of memory that actually instructs the animal that this is not such a dangerous place.”
