Memory erasing gene discovered
Erasing memories may no longer be the stuff of science fiction, US researchers believe.
Scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology say they have discovered a gene in mice, known as Tet1, which can overwrite old memories with new ones.
As part of their study, scientists compared the behaviour of mice that had their Tet1 gene "knocked out," to those who had not.
