    About This Project

    In Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet erase their shared memories to avoid the emotional burden of a separation. Although in humans erasing selective memories is still science fiction, converging results indicate that specific emotional memories can be targeted and potentially modified during sleep. We aim to develop a novel tool to modify emotional memories with the goal of reducing negative feelings.
