"The Forgetting Pill Erases Painful Memories." Is that Always a Good Thing?


The article "The Forgetting Pill Erases Painful Memories Forever" is one of the longer ones that you have been assigned this semester. However, I believe you will find the content to be very interesting and thought provoking due to the importance of the breakthrough and the implications of being able to erase painful memories.

For this assignment, I would like you to write a one page essay (500 - 700 words) discussing what you believe to be the positives and negatives of being able to erase a painful memory.

These implications are discussed in the article. However, I would like you to think about how you feel about the article and discuss your thoughts in the essay rather than parroting the thoughts of the people interviewed in the article.
