Scripps Florida scientists identify neurotranmitters that lead to forgetting
Date:5/9/2012

surprised that forgetting is an active process. "Biology isn't designed to do things in a passive way," he said. "There are active pathways for constructing things, and active ones for degrading things. Why should forgetting be any different?"

The study also brings into a focus a lot of intriguing issues, Davis saidsavant syndrome, for example.

"Savants have a high capacity for memory in some specialized areas," he said. "But maybe it isn't memory that gives them this capacity, maybe they have a bad forgetting mechanism. This also might be a strategy for developing drugs to promote cognition and memorywhat about drugs that inhibit forgetting as cognitive enhancers?"
