By using the technique, you may be able to get rid of your fear-related memories.
Genomes are not all equal. The human body has about 20,000 genes- but some of this genetic material does something! It turns out that most junk DNA doesn’t do anything at all and lives in regions called “genic intervals,” which can be found on either side or within coding sequences like transcribed Areas (the part where proteins are made). However scientists noticed when they explored these areas closely – there’s always an active form present too; even if it may seem mute to us humans who don’t understand their function yet…
Junk DNA may be the key to extinguishing fear-related memories for people struggling with PTSD and other anxiety disorders.
In a new study, researchers discovered that these “junk” stretches of genetic material are essential in blocking traumatic experiences from forming emotional attachments—an important step toward helping those who have been diagnosed [or] live lives impacted by these devastating conditions learn more coping mechanisms themselves!
What if a traumatic experience could be extinction-fixed?
scientists at the University of Queensland have discovered a new gene called ADRAM that acts as a scaffold for molecules inside cells, coordinating fear memory formation. The same substance also helps coordinate among different types of memories – such as those related to danger and safety during an episode where something scared us witless!
The study discovered433 long non-coding RNAs from relatively unknown regions of the human genome. These new findings provide insight into how our brains respond to fear and may eventually lead us toward a better understanding of mental illnesses such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
“We now have a much better understanding of how gene activity affects memory, and this is allowing us to create targeted tools for modifying long noncoding RNAs in the brain which may be responsible. These new therapies could potentially help people suffering from PTSD or phobias.”
