**Post film discussion about new research on how memories are formed and whether we might someday be able to erase specific memories with Professor Brock Kirwan of the BYU Department of Psychology & Neuroscience Center.
In this unforgettable cult classic about memory, Joel Barish learns that his estranged girlfriend has had her memories of their relationship erased. Not to be outdone, Joel decides to undergo the same experimental procedure. While the science in the film sounds fantastical, current research suggests something akin to the procedure in the movie may be possible.
Recommended for mature audiences.
