Daredevil – the man without fear, could very soon make his way from fiction to fact is work by this particular group of scientists were to continue in greater detail. It seems that researchers over at Uppsala University conducted a study that showed how newly formed emotional memories can be erased from, of all places, the human brain. This possibility will definitely throw open new doors to how humans think and are wired. For instance, when we learn something, a lasting long-term memory is created through the help of the consolidation process, that is based on the formation of proteins. Whenever we recall something, the memory becomes unstable for a moment before it is stabilized by another consolidation process.
To put it in plain English, we are not actually remembering what happened originally, but we remembered the last time when we thought about what happened. Having said that, through the disruption of the reconsolidation process that is often followed up upon remembering, this means one can affect the memory content. In other words, using this principle, one is theoretically able to erase the sense of fear from the human brain. I see that this will come in handy to help those who were traumatized by scarring events such as war or being robbed or assaulted. Up next, memory implants and inception. Still, this is far from removing the emotion of fear totally to churn out a real life Daredevil.
