Scientists from the University of Florida in the United States have developed a drug that relieves people from the memories acquired during drug intoxication. Scientific work with the description of the drug appeared in the journal Nature. Scientists have noted feature of the protein actin, which is involved in the creation of connections between neurons. Normally actin is stabilized, "protecting" the memories. However, during the amphetamine intoxication protein remains unregulated. It is possible to develop a drug that disrupts actin structures in the brain associated with memories, thereby erasing certain memories. The medicine is called "Blebbistatin» (Blebbistatin) and have passed a series of tests on mice. The researchers found that the drug only erases memories obtained while taking the drug, and does not affect the rest of the memory. Effect extends for at least 30 days, sufficient for the action of a single dose of medication. It is also important that the drug does not affect the actin muscle and heart. Scientists suggest that the drug may be a chance for people who are unable to overcome the addiction. However, yet to be tested as a drug would act on the human body - a process that can take several years.
