    Memory Re-writes To Treat Disorders

    PA
    Scientists have succeeded in conquering fear in human volunteers by "rewriting" their memories.

    The breakthrough follows similar results in animal experiments, and could lead to radical new ways of treating post-traumatic stress and other anxiety disorders without using drugs.

    Earlier research had shown that emotional memories are susceptible to being modified each time they are retrieved.

    For a short "consolidation window" period of six hours, a resurrected frightening memory can be tamed by re-training so that it no longer feels threatening.

    The technique was demonstrated in rats taught to associate a certain sound with an electric shock.

    Now scientists in the US have gone a step further and shown that what is true for rodents also applies to humans.

    Researchers led by Professor Elizabeth Phelps, from New York University, carried out an experiment in which 20 volunteers were first conditioned to fear coloured squares by pairing them with electric shocks to the wrist.

    The next day the memory was re-activated by once again showing participants the feared squares. By measuring electrical conductance of the skin, which increases when the nervous system is aroused, the scientists confirmed that the volunteers were experiencing a fear response.

    The researchers then started the reprogramming process, known as "extinction training", designed to erase the fearful memory.

    Volunteers were repeatedly exposed to the coloured squares, this time without the accompanying shocks. Eventually the once-frightening objects came to be regarded as harmless. Repeating the test 24 hours later showed that the fear associated with the squares had gone - but only in participants whose memories were rewritten soon after fear reactivation

    Repeating the test 24 hours later showed that the fear associated with the squares had gone -- but only in participants whose memories were rewritten soon after fear reactivation.
    Those given extinction training after a gap of six hours remained afraid of the squares. The same was true of a third group of participants who received extinction training without first experiencing reactivation of the fear memory.
    Immune
    A year later, the volunteers were brought back to the laboratory. The scientists made a strong attempt to re-instate their fear by delivering four electric shocks followed by presentations of the same coloured squares.
    Participants whose fear memories had earlier been erased during the "consolidation window" were largely immune to the shock treatment. However, the others experienced a significant rekindling of the fear response.
    The new research, reported yesterday in the journal 'Nature', shows that fearful memories can be banished without resorting to chemicals that affect the brain.
    Prof Phelps said: "Previous attempts to disrupt fear memories have relied on pharmacological interventions.
    "Our results suggest such invasive techniques may not be necessary. Using a more natural intervention that captures the adaptive purpose of reconsolidation allows a safe way to prevent the return of fear," she added.
    Victims and witnesses of serious accidents, natural disasters, violent crimes or acts of war and terrorist attacks may be some of the people most likely to benefit from rewriting fear memories.
    Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can cause "flashbacks" which revive terrifying memories, recurring nightmares, "hypervigilance" -- jumpiness and irritability, feelings of panic and fear, social isolation and depression.
    Lives can be ruined by the effects of PTSD, which may last many years.
    A US study in 2004 found that one in eight soldiers returned from fighting in Iraq with symptoms of PTSD.

    the brain always remembers what it likes most; try to show interest in things that u want to remember. This is why u only remember some things from ur childhood and not everything.

    then try to associate things; its easier to keep things associated for instance mtu akisema anaitwa John associate his resemblance with a person u know anaitwa John.

    keep a diary. Its January 2011 buy one my friend

    Tatizo la kusau linasababishwa na mambo mengi sana. Mfano may be uko na jambo linalo kusumbua ambalo linakusababishia mawazo (stress), eventually hupati usingizi wa kutosha. Kumbuka kiafya unahsuriwa kulala masaa 8 kwa siku. Kupoteza kumbukumbu inamaanisha kwamba ubongo wako haupati mzunguko wa damu ya kutosha (fuzzy thinking are often connected to lack of blood flow to the brain). The brain responsible for short-term memory, concentration, sleep, sexual and emotional drives, and the 'feel-good factorÂ’. This part is bathed by cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which provides nutrients (glucose and oxygen) to the brain and the surface of the spinal cord. Some of the nutrients sent to the limbic system come directly from blood supplied by arteries of the brain, particularly the vertebral arteries in the neck.Pia ukiwa mlevi sana wa pombe kama konyagi kwa mfano. Alcohol can produce detectable impairments in memory after only a few drinks and, as the amount of alcohol increases, so does the degree of impairment. Large quantities of alcohol, especially when consumed quickly and on an empty stomach, can produce a blackout, or an interval of time for which the intoxicated person cannot recall key details of events, or even entire events. In order to relieve your symptoms, I suggest you change your lifestyle for the second half of your cycle before you cry with one eye!!

    Memory Problems

    About
    Memory is affected by nutrient deficiencies, free radical exposure, alcohol, drugs, allergies, stress, and other factors. Memory problems are not limited to aging adults, but can affect those of all ages.


    Notes

    • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
    • Attitudes and approach to aging have a factor in our ability to remember.
    • Beta-Blocker, Benzodiazepines, some painkillers, antihistamines and anticholinergics can have an adverse effect.
    • Estrogen may or may not improve memory function.
    • To forget every now and again is normal. You may have a problem if you start to forget things that are more common to you before and becoming lost in familiar surrounding telling the same story over and over again there may be a problem.
    • To improve the brain's function use HGH (human Growth Hormone)


    Advice

    • Be sure to rest.
    • Blueberries and spinach could help in retaining memory.
    • Do not eat reined sugars.
    • Exercise regularly.
    • For a month do not eat dairy or wheat products.
    • Hold your breath for 30 seconds every day to help alertness.
    • Use your brain everyday to increase the activity and you should be more likely to recall.
    • Your diet needs to consist of raw fruits and vegetables.

    kusahau wakati una kazi nyingi ni jambo la kawaida kwa kuwa ubongo wa binadamu hauwezi ku-handle vitu vingi kwa wakati mmoja. Tiba ya tatizo lako ni kuandika kila jambo unalopanga kulifanya au unaloambiwa kulifanya au tumia reminder ya kwenye computer iwe inakukumbusha vitu kama vikao na tasks muhimu unazotakiwa kuzifanya au kama ni boss mwambie sekretari wako awe anakukumbusha vitu muhimu kama vikao n.k
