Canada’s CBC Radio has produced a one-hour documentary for its “Ideas” program exploring the science, therapeutics and ethics of our burgeoning capability to erase memories.
The program summary states, “Some neuroscientists believe they are on the verge of being able to delete memories. It could mean a cure for people who suffer from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). But at what cost to the individual and at what cost to society? Dick Miller delves into the science and the ethics of memory deletion.”
Interviewees include various Canadian soldiers, assault survivors, advocates for victims of violent crimes, psychiatrists, neuroscientists and psychologists.
