So you broke up with your girlfriend? don’t worry about it, you’ll get over it soon enough, specially with the help of Metopirone Researchers from the University of Montreal have found a drug that seems to shut down a person’s recollection of “bad” memories, yet the “good” memories remain in tact. This is possibly the first drug that can effectively achieve the early stages of Active Memory Modification.
The drug has been around for some time already, it’s often used to diagnose adrenal insufficiency, but what the researchers found is that it effects the stress hormones in such a way that it puts a cap on those bad break up memories…
The way this medicine works is by decreasing the levels of Cortisol, is a steroid produced in the adrenal gland when you get stressed, the researchers are messing around with the levels of Cortisol in our bodies shortly after OR during a stressful event. The memories of that even are actually impaired from being engraved into your memory, possibly permanently….Okay that right there is where the red flags should start to go off…. the drug causes you to permanently “forget” what happened during the middle of a stressful situation. Uhm, Rape Victims.. Hello? we already have a problem with Rohypnol “date rape” now you can drug a victim, and cause enough stress to them that they completely forget what happened. But that’s not all, if people are taking this drug and they crash, get assaulted, or any of the above, there goes their ability to recall what happened when they go to the police.
This is a very different type of neurological manipulation, the researchers conducted the trial in which men were given a dosage of Metyrapone and taught a story with both neutral and negative elements. They were asked to remember as much of the story as possible and four days later they were asked details of the story. They found that the men who were given the “medicine” could not remember the “negative” parts of the story but they could remember the neutral elements. While the Placebo group remembered both neutral and negative parts.
No I’m not completely against the drug, if you give this to soldiers, this will minimize the risk of a Post Traumatic stress syndrome/disorder. If they can some how manage to make the drug work after an event has already happened, then this would be a different story. But as it stands right now, it looks more like a problem than a solution. Imagine for once in a crazy world straight out of a movie, Citizens given this medicine without us knowing it, the world would be such a happy place. When we start to see “full” peace on Earth, you better remember to take a drug test, if you find this drug in your system, you know there is some crazy S***T going on around you… you just can’t remember it.
