Finding ways to enhance memory has been a goal of many research labs for a very long time. It has also been a popular topic amongst science-fiction enthusiasts and college students. What would we be capable of with the ability to remember more things? Or what if we could forget unwanted memories? Oh the possibilities! Well, these types of scientific breakthroughs are no longer just a dream as researchers have now started to identify cellular mechanisms and signaling pathways that could potentially aid in altering memory. In an article published in the most recent issue of Nature Neuroscience, researchers at the University of California Irvine have shown that an FDA-approved drug for multiple sclerosis (MS) can enhance memory extinction in mice.
