Scientists Have Discovered How To 'Delete' Unwanted Memories ( 93

A new documentary from PBS reveals how cutting edge science enables us to 'edit' memories and create new ones from scratch. "For much of human history, memory has been seen as a tape recorder that faithfully registers information and replays it intact," say the film's makers. "But now, researchers are discovering that memory is far more malleable, always being written and rewritten, not just by us but by others. We are discovering the precise mechanisms that can explain and even control our memories."
What will prevent people from making the same bad decisions that lead to the memories in the first place again? Will companies want this action at the end of contracts?
