From fearful to cheerful

By artificially activating circuits in the brain, scientists have turned negative memories into positive ones. They gave mice bad memories of a place, then made them good - or vice versa - without returning to that place. Neurons storing the "place" memory were re-activated in a different emotional context, modifying the association. Although unlikely to be applied in humans with traumatic memories, the work sheds new light on the details of how emotional memories form and change.
