The headline alone is enough, really: Military Investigates Amnesia Beams. The short of it is that scientists have finally figured out how to selectively zap certain memories out of mice, and the military is quite interested. Apparently, since the 80s, they’ve known how to erase about the last 4 seconds of a rodents memory, but this is the first time they’ve been able to get older memories deleted.
Our heads, the hard drives. The military, the ones with the software to read/write. Hurrah.
