Would you take a pill to help forget about traumatic events from the past?
Scientists found that a drug called fingolimod, used to treat multiple sclerosis, caused mice to completely forget about past events that brought them physical pain.
Researchers from the Virginia Commonwealth University believe that this offers hope of a drug that could eradicate painful memories that would help patients to overcome phobias, eating disorders and sexual hang-ups.
