Question: Is it possible to erase memories and other information (skills) permanently from the human brain besides getting the disease of debenture or other memory loss diseases. I have heard some similar theories about this before but I do not know if it is true.

  1. If you remove the connections between brain cells, or kill brain cells, then the function of those cells will also be lost.
    So, there are things like certain drugs which are called neurotoxins and these kill cells.


  2. If you remove the area called the hippocampus, which is your memory area, then it can affect how well you form memories and remember things. There is no way to erase specific memories though, as far as I know!!

    There have been a few other questions on memory, so maybe check out the answers to those too!
