Replacing Fear Memories

The human brain goes through a complex process to form and consolidate memories. But is it possible to replace memories of fearful events, and in doing so, assist in the treatment of patients suffering from the debilitating effects of posttraumatic stress disorder or other anxiety disorders?

Dr. Joseph LeDoux and a team of New York University neuroscientists think they have found a way to replace traumatic memories through therapy.
