Transcript of Leah Anderski
This was tested on patients who were told two troubling and graphic stories, then patients were asked to return and answer questions about one story just before being put to sleep. The patients who were "zapped," forgot about the story they were last asked about. The non-zapped patients recalled every story.
The theory supports that after receiving an electrical shock to the brain, people can forget events with troubling details, over time.
This procedure would have to take place not long after the event you would want to essentially "erase."

My View of Erasing Memory
While there can be many positive effects of this process, I find it scary because so many things can go wrong. I feel it should only be used when someone has an extreme mental illness or memory. Since it is dealing with memory, this might erase more toughts than you want to.. like positive things. Therefore i disagree.
