A recent study by researchers at the Georgia College of Medicine found a way to "erase" memories. In a study with mice, they found that a particular protein admitted in high quantities while recalling an event will erase a memory.
I never could tell how they know that mice are or aren't remembering. Do they ask them? How do the mice respond? I will have to check into this.
Either way, would you consider erasing a memory a la Eternal Sunshine...? Apparently it is not that far off. You can find the article here.
